Scratchboard Drawing Workshop
Learn the tips and tools of creating a successful scratchboard drawing. This medium allows for fine details, unusual textures, high contrast in values.
I'll demonstrate how to transfer your drawing onto the surface, how to use a variety of drawing tools, and how to correct mistakes. Working together after the demonstration gives students time to experiment and ask questions.

(*I advise AGAINST the paper-backed scratchboard, as it tears easily. Ampersand brand is best) Please support your local art store whenever possible, or an online art supply retailer. Dick Blick has everything you need.
I also use an upholstery or inflexible sewing needle taped to a pencil. Some artists like to use steel wool, but it will leave an oily residue, which darkens the black surface of the scratchboard.
OR you might like a variety of scratchboard blades
black 01 micron pen for corrections
drawing the size of your scratchboard- your drawing should be done before the workshop so that you can start scratching in class
