Scratchboard is considered a subtractive medium, which to some may seem daunting at first. In this 4 hour, single session workshop I will break it down to show you how to approach it in a way that makes sense. We will use different tools to create textures and values. We'll also look at the different mediums that can be used to add color. Finally, we will do exercises on Ampersand (black) Scratchbord and (white) Claybord, as well as a scratch (scraper) paper to get a feel for the different surfaces, tools and techniques.


You will need to bring:

- 5x7 or 6x6 Ampersand Scratchbord and Claybord

- Xacto or craft knife with #1 and #11 blades

- White gel pen or Faber Castell White Pitt pen or white colored pencil or white charcoal pencil. 

- 3 Tombow pens (whatever colors you wish)


I will provide:

- Scratch paper

- Black paper

- Transfer papers

- Some of the other scratching tools for you try out


If you have any of your own scratchboard materials, please bring them.
