"All the Letters in Your Name"

 Start: At any place on your page - this example started at the lower left. Draw the first letter (from your name) with an outline shape (lower case letters are the most interesting.)
Before you draw the second letter, turn it, so that it creates interesting negative shapes.
Let the letters touch each other in order to close off more of the negative spaces.
Fill your page, adding and turning letters, and creating interesting negative spaces between them.

*Teaching points: letterforms, upper and lower cases, pos/neg space, letters as shapes
