How To Use Bleeding Tissue Paper
Students are introduced to a new art material, bleeding tissue paper, to create a vibrant mixed media page. A demo video is included that covers seven different ways bleeding tissue paper can be used in a visual journal.
  • Students will be introduced to and experiment with mixed media art, using multiple art materials, creating collages, and finding inspiration to create a unique work of art in their visual journal. They will incorporate bleeding tissue paper into their work of art using one or more technique introduced.
I can't remember not having art in my life. I was raised by an art teacher, got my bachelor's and master's in art education, taught art-focused summer camps, volunteered in art classrooms, and taught high school art for over 12 years. Now I develop art lessons and curriculums for other teachers or homeschool parents to implement in their art classrooms. I love the flexibility virtual teaching offers me while still allowing me to be involved in education. Please reach out anytime with questions or comments!

Details: Once the demo videos and materials have been reviewed students have the opportunity to use the material and technique in their own visual journal that week.
If you haven't taken my Introduction to visual journals class, that is the best starting point. You can sign up for the one-week intro here: http://bit.ly/48qqrpc or the full 4-week intro here: https://bit.ly/4axM3Sn
Used hardback book to work in, bleeding tissue paper (not standard tissue paper, art tissue paper is needed this can be found at art and craft stores or ordered from sites such as Amazon) magazines, glue, scissors, additional flat materials such as printed pictures, scrapbook paper, and similar they want to collage with.
Students will control what the subject matter is in their own artwork and I don't show anything that could be upsetting or above a G rating. Students may need to use supplies such as scissors, supervision may be needed.
Nothing is required outside of Outschool to complete the assignment. However, it is helpful for students to be able to search for visual journal inspiration on Pinterest, YouTube, or similar.
