Product Description
This three page worksheet set is a good way to introduce the concepts of positive and negative space. Although sometimes this concept is hard to visualize, this worksheet set uses a combination of fun illusions and free-form colouring to guide the student.

Page 1:
Using widely known double images, or optical illusions, students can separate two different areas of an image and look at them each as individual pieces.

Pages 2-3:
Using selectively chosen colouring book style open-source images, students can pick out the areas in an image they feel contribute to the positive or negative space. This is a very relaxed exercise that lets the students explore the concept at their own pace with a familiar exercise.
