When students create sculptures, they should take into account the negative space. An easy way to introduce students to negative space is to teach them how to create open form sculptures. This affordable art activity is easy to do because it only requires paper, glue, and permanent markers.
This open form assignment would work well as a companion project with Closed Form Sculpture: Intro to Buddhist Iconography
The PDF file download includes the art lesson plan and grading rubrics for the art project.
