Saturday, August 28th, 11 am – 4:30 pm, at Art League of Lincoln in Lincoln, 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 values to enhance the detail. Ann uses Ampersand Scratchbord in her workshops. Advanced students may use Ampersand Claybord (white scratchboard) with prior approval.
Open to all levels; new students and those with previous scratchboard experience are welcome. Supplies included. You must provide your own reference photo(s). Instructions & directions will be sent after registration.
$95 per person for Art League Members
$105 per person for Non-members
Please register/pay in advance, as class size is limited and you will need to come prepared with your reference photos (information will be sent after registration).
