Scratchboard is a clay coated board covered by a thin layer of black ink. An image is revealed by scratching away the ink to expose the white clay. Students will be provided with three 5"X7" Ampersand boards plus scratching tools. Students will first learn basic scratching techniques (lines, cross-hatching, feathering, etc.) using one of the boards for practice. They will also learn how to re-ink and re-scratch the boards to develop image depth. Each student will then create an original design of a feather for themselves. They will learn how to transfer the image to the board and learn how to develop shadow and light. Students will need to complete the board at home. The instructor will be available to later review the final image and offer suggestions.

All proceeds will be used towards building permanent art gallery space in the community. Rich is also the Co-Director of the Northmister Fine Arts Fair.
