Positive and Negative Space that Pops With Color!
This project was great for 6th Grade! The kids learned about positive space (the subject) and negative space (the background). I encouraged them to overlap shapes and make it super interesting!
Choose a good shape.
Draw and cut out the shape.
Trace the shapes onto the paper.
Overlap the shapes.
Erase the lines where the shapes overlap.
For the background, add color with colored pencils and color in the same direction. Also, press down with the pencils. The kids were told to choose a background pattern that looked good with their design.
