Torn Paper Here, Torn Paper There, Torn Paper EVERYWHERE!!!

Both 4th graders and 7th graders are working on torn paper projects.  You can imagine what the art room floor looked like at the end of the day.  

4th graders are using bleeding tissue paper to create beautiful flower bouquets.  The sharpied design shines through the tissue paper and leaves for a very "watercolor"-like effect.  As the tissue gets wet with the glue, the color bleeds like watercolor as well. 

7th graders continue to work on their Mexican folk art inspired design that is then filled-in with torn metallic papers.  Eventually, details will be embossed into the foil papers and then the entire picture will be painted completely black and the black paint will fill in any of the white spaces.  When it is wiped away it leaves a very antique looking artwork.  Here are a few pictures showing the works in-progress.
