With all but one of the Reverse Value Drawings completed, the 5th Grade Class moved on to their Positive and Negative Space Project. After picking out a reference image, everyone started their new drawings. The subjects are Elton John, a ram, a goat, a wolf, a dog, and a puppy. After drawing an outline, the background has to be filled with at least six different patterns that will help divide the space, either into details or just into randomized sections. After that, the subject of the drawing has to be cut out, flipped over, and decorated in the same way. That creates two different positive spaces: one from the foreground and one from the background. One of the most interesting parts about this project is seeing how different the patterns are for each person. Creativity is an amazing thing.
