February 10 & 24 - Scratchboard Class taught by Kathy Haney
Learn techniques needed to create dramatic drawings in scratchboard. Scratchboard is a “reverse drawing” method. Starting with a board coated in white clay which has a layer of black in applied, images are scratched through the ink revealing the white clay. Instead of drawing shadows the artist brings out the highlights, leaving the darker areas for shadow.

The class will focus on understanding tools and materials, creating values and textures, choosing effective subjects and compositions and finishing and presenting your artwork. If you like working with black and white, this class will provide new opportunities and new challenges for you to express yourself.

There is a minimum of supplies for maximum success. All levels of expertise welcome.

Supply tools:

- I use a pen holder with a triangle shaped scratchboard nib.

- An X-acto knife can be an effective tool

- An assortment of tools can be purchased to give different effects, including pinpoints, wire bristle tools and steel wool. You can find “kits” of tools for scratchboard. I recommend starting with the pen nib or X-acto and getting other tools as you gain experience.

- Pencil – soft drawing pencil (#2 or softer)

- Eraser – kneaded

- Tissues (without added lotion) or tracing paper

- Tracing paper and graphite paper

- Scratchboard - a couple of smaller boards for practice (you can get a 3 pack of 5” x 7”) and a larger size for a final drawing. Choose a size that you feel comfortable with. Keep in mind that details are difficult to do in smaller sizes.

- Black and white reference photos of images you would like to draw.   

Saturdays 9:30-12:30. $60 for 2 classes.*
