Tear Pictures

To make a tear picture, you will need: different colors of construction paper, glue, and white paper.


  1. Choose a simple picture to make.

  2. To make paper easier to work with, cut construction paper into fourths.

  3. Carefully tear shapes needed for your picture out of construction paper. Shapes do not have to be perfect—that’s what makes tear pictures interesting.

  4. Glue shapes onto white paper.
