Another Not Wordless Wednesday


We've been working through "Snowflake Bentley" last week and this week.  Today, we worked on Negative Space.  Don't recall where I found the idea for negative space, but it was a fun art project for the boys to work on.  Here's what we did:

  1. start with two favorite colors of construction paper
  2. cut one in half and set one half aside
  3. fold larger sheet in half (optional) to give kids a reference point
  4. draw a design or half of a scene on smaller piece of paper
  5. cut out scene or objects
  6. lay out the parts cut from the half sheet along the fold forming half the design
  7. the remaining parts are placed on the opposite side of the full sheet in locations opposite those from which they were cut
  8. glue parts down
