​A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)

Negative space is the background of the image that is drawn. It is what's behind the image.

B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

The cut out showed negative and positive space as different perspectives. The blue on the black switched to the other side and changed to a different perspective. When I drew the stool drawing ( hair pik drawing) I drew the outline of the hair pik and shaded the background a dark color to show the shape of the hair pik.

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

It helps an artist to see in negative space because it helps them see the negative side of things. Also, it changes their views of seeing pictures.

D. How is negative space useful in creating art?

Negative space is useful in creating art because it helps you really see the artwork. It focuses it in away.
