Description 

 

In this workshop students will learn the basic techniques involved in creating detailed scratchboard art. Scratchboard drawing involves the use of specific tools to directly remove a surface layer of China clay that is coated with black, India ink. The values within the artwork from light to dark are achieved by varying the amount of surface layers scratched away or adding further layers of India ink. Scratchboard art can be completed in black and white or colour. If color is added, a variety of transparent mediums may be used, including watercolor, ink, coloured pencils, airbrush and diluted acrylics. The workshop is suitable for both beginners and advanced artists.
