Filling Negative Space

This week the children have been exploring negative space and coming up with ideas of how to fill that space. They created the negative space by placing a leaf on a sheet of paper and rubbing chalk pastel over it. Below is an example of what negative space looks like before the children fill it.

Some of the children used the leaf negative space to jigsaw together a picture they wanted. Meanwhile others created the negative space and then came up with how they wished to fill it. The children used a mix of chalk pastel, oil pastel and googly eyes to create their art work.
One child created a pattern with their lines outside the negative space.

Overall everyone had fun experimenting and using their creativity. Next week we will be practicing our still life drawing skills with some Autumnal objects.
