Saturday, February 25th, 11 am – 4:30 pm, PlacerArts, Auburn CA
Sometimes called “the art of taking away”, scratchboard is a medium that allows for amazing detail, but is also surprisingly forgiving and versatile. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic techniques for working on scratchboard. Knives will be used in class, but any abrasive object can be used to remove the black ink from a board to reveal the white coating beneath. Ink can be added and re-scratched, allowing for softness and a range of tones to enhance the detail.
Open to all levels; new and past students welcome. Supplies included. You must provide your own reference photo(s). Instructions will be sent after registration.
$85 per person for PlacerArts members, $90 for non-members, must register & pre-pay through PlacerArts.
Please register/pay in advance, as class size is limited to 10 students
To register, contact Linda Green, ARTspace Coordinator: (530) 613-6284 or linda@PlacerArts.org
