1st Grade - Positive/Negative Space Painting
First graders learned about the important use of space with this watercolor project. We started the lesson by focusing on how we can use negative space to help us see the important, positive parts of artwork. Then we switched to some composition discussion when we drew the shapes on our piece of paper. The goal was to identify which parts of our drawing are positive space and leave them white. We used watercolor paints to finish off the negative space. Take a look at some cool examples.
