Explore Positive and Negative Space in Art

I’ve been working away on my new website, Judiths Art Projects – Creativity Beat.  Today I put up a new art project, A Positive Negative Space Art Lesson – the Y Tree.

Everyone loves trees!  Plus they are fun and easy to draw.  By drawing a tree with an emphasis on all the points where the tree branches out (always forming a “y”) you will also have an important positive / negative space art lesson.

Here’s an example of a student’s drawing for this project.Student drawing of y tree
