5th Grade Positive and Negative Space

In this exercise, the fifth grade students explored the relationship between positive and negative space. SPACE and SHAPE, two of the elements of design, work together to form a finished work of art. Positive spaces are those occupied by the main subject of the work. The Negative space is the space around and between the main subjects.  A good artist realizes that the space surrounding an object is just as important as that object itself.
