Project 23

Tissue Paper Flowers

Step 1.

Follow Ashley’s instructions to make your own tissue paper flowers. You’ll need…

– Tissue paper 
– Pipe cleaners or wire
– Scissors
– Tape
– Clothespin (optional)
Wall Hanging:
– Cardboard
– Wrapping paper (or you could decorate it using paint or collage)
– Wire or string
– Pen or other object to poke holes.
Members of the Nina Collective, contact the studio if you need more supplies to complete this project!

Step 2.

Show us! Send your photos to janice@thenina.ca, and share them on social media using #NinaArtChallenge. We’ll share your artwork with the world in our digital art gallery!

Some tips for photographing your work:
– Make sure your artwork is well lit. Natural light (from a window or outside) works best!
– Try your best to take the photo straight-on to avoid weird angles. Hanging your art on a wall to take the photo works great, or you can lay your piece flat and shoot from above (but watch out for shadows!)

Ashley Herrington

Ashley Herrington is a mixed media artist from Edmonton. She recently graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2019. She is one six participants in the 2020 RBC Emerging Artists projects at the Nina. Her artwork reflects an attachment to memories associated with objects deemed as relics, while in the hands of another, they are meaningless.

The Nina has suspended our programs until the COVID-19 situation has stabilized, but we’re challenging all of our artists to keep making art at home with the #NinaArtChallenge!

Because we know our artists aren’t the only people stuck at home unexpectedly right now, we’d like to invite all of our friends and followers to participate in these art challenges as well. You can sign up now to receive the #NinaArtChallenge prompts by email and create along with us.
