Negative space collage

First and second grade artists learned about Positive and Negative Space. Although I hope the Art Room is always a "Positive Space," sometimes is is the use negative space in a piece of art that makes it interesting.

Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and suchspace occasionally is used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image. from Wikipedia
