CATC Art Studio


COME & TRY IT – Scratchboard

Instructor: Ginny Hutcheson

Ginny Hutcheson

The club provides residents with a unique opportunity to try a new art medium without making a large investment. If you have never painted before this is the workshop for you! If you have painted but want to try out a new medium, this is the class for you! You will receive professional instruction and all the necessary supplies for this class. You may sign up for any or all workshops. The workshops are intended for absolute beginners. You will receive hands-on-time with the materials and techniques of the medium. It is a great way to remove the intimidation of getting started in painting.

Scratchboard is a two-dimensional, subtractive process to reveal a subject in a black and white painting. Using an X-acto knife or scratch knife, you will scratch off the black India ink on the hardboard to reveal white clay underneath. Scratching on the board will reveal the picture you are developing.

The pattern, tools and scratchboards will be provided for you. The subject for this class will be of something like a bird, cat, wild animal, etc.  You do not need drawing or painting experience because this class teaches you how to develop the subject from a pattern that is traced onto the scratchboard.

Please bring a table cover that covers 1/4th of a 6′ table.  Scratchboard supplies will be provided by the Fine Arts Painting Club.
