Masking Tape Portrait

This is another way of getting lots of irregular torn edges, without the fuss of gluing them down. I used blue painter’s tape to make this portrait on a piece of colored paper.
1. Each student will need a 9" x 12" piece of colored paper, and a roll of blue painter’s tape (sharing would work too). I used the 1.5" wide variety so I was forced to tear it a lot if I wanted narrow strips. I personally think the more torn edges there are, the better the art looks.
2. I started by laying down the oval shape, then the neck, and finally the face and hair. You could require the students to make their head touch the top and sides of the paper so their faces will be large. Small faces would be difficult to fill in.
