CATC Art Studio

Come and Try It means that you get to visit the class at no expense for supplies and try a new medium of art before you invest in art supplies for a class. This is a class for new students only.

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.

Contact Ginny Hutcheson at or 520-906-0930 to register for the class. The class is $20 and limited to 6 students.
