The Art of Scratch Board at Allure Art Center

August 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Introduction to Scratch Board Art
Instructor – Arthur Wolz
2 hours class

Scratchboard is a 2-dimensional subtractive art form of direct engraving where the artist scratches off dark ink to reveal a white or colored layer beneath. Scratchboard refers to both a fine-art medium, and an illustrative technique using sharp knives and tools for engraving into a thin layer of clay that is coated with dark, often black India ink. This unique process has attracted artists for its control in rendering intricate subject matter, while remaining highly versatile to those exploring folk art, abstract work and many other artistic styles. Scratchboard has roots going back to the 1800’s when black and while illustrations were created for newspapers and books. Creation of archival, museum grade materials has allowed it to continually evolve to the present day where it is now prominent in design work and fine art.
In this class guests will learn the process of scratch board art and create their own work to take home.
