Knotting

Knowing how to tie knots can be very helpful. Whether your fishing, camping, or tying off a boat, there are many knots that come in handy for various uses. We’ll use knots to learn about art elements of line and space and discover how to overlap to create depth in a drawing. You’ll also become familiar with the term negative space, which in art refers to the space between shapes, such as the loops in this Buntline Hitch knot to the right. Use the graphic cards to practice tying knots, get familiar with the lines of the knot, and help you create your drawing. Keep them loose so you have negative spaces in your drawing.
