This is an enjoyable, tactile art project which explores using torn paper as texture. The older students first drew their own pictures, then shredded tiny pieces of paper to glue within the lines. Because this takes longer than one art period to complete, and because it has therapeutic effects, it is nice to spend three to four art periods on it.

The younger students were given a few different "stained glass" type coloring pictures to choose from as the lines are thicker and it is easier for them to stay within them. They then shredded the paper and glued it inside the lines.
