Chigirie - Japanese Torn Paper Collage art is the Japanese art of tearing paper to create a collage, it's also known
as painting with paper.
Challenge: combine a variety of papers (newspaper, magazine, etc.) Build values by “painting with paper”
Inspirational artist: Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson @
 Use recycled papers to ‘blend’ values & colors to ‘paint’ a picture
 Apply concepts from “Layered Paper” project
 Consider hard (cut) lines vs. soft (torn) edges
 Use pattern as texture
 Create an illusion of depth (distance in a landscape or 3D object)
 Apply good Composition techniques studied in past projects
 Craftsmanship is always important! (Sloppiness distracts from final image).
 Include an artist statement & self-evaluation.
Extra: Add an element of surprise in the choice of recycled products (stamps, gum/candy wrappers, cereal packaging,
old map, key words from magazines & newspapers, etc.)

… could this effect be done with layers of one color of tissue paper?
