How to Teach Negative Space – Drawing Scissors

How to Teach Negative Space

Learning how to teach negative space is an essential skill for an art teacher and these worksheets make this tricky task a little bit easier.  Students often struggle with this concept but with the ‘good example’ included in this download really helps.  This download includes:

  • 3 differentiated ‘Negative Space’ worksheets.  One includes two pairs of scissors, the next 3 and the final one 4 which makes the number of negative shapes to draw increase.
  • A good example to show students so they can visually see that only the shapes between the scissors has been drawn.  Sometimes seeing is believing!
  • An optional extension task of drawing the scissors and using their knowledge of negative space to get the scissors in place.

There are 5 pages in this download, all of which are pictured above.  It’s an ideal package to teach negative space.  There are more negative space resources on The Arty Teacher.
