Drawing as investigation – Negative Space.
What if we drew what wasn’t there? Why do we always draw around things? These are some of the questions the Access Art and Design students asked themselves in the ‘Negative Space’ Lesson. Students were encouraged to work like Matisse cutting the negative spaces out of black paper to create simple collages which explored negative space. Students also created quick pencil and ink studies exploring the same approach. A simple a quick exercise which turns observational drawing on its head! These quick studies resulted in outcomes with huge design potential!
