Scratchboard - Student Work

 My Intermediate 2-d students love this assignment.  I buy them all a piece of scratchboard (white poster paper covered with a black ink), and give them two different headed nibs and off they go to scratch away the black to get to the white.I encourage them to use pointillism and crosshatching to create their value ranges with.  This top piece was done by sophomore Cindy Kim.
After their drawing is done I require them to go back into the piece and put down at least 50% watercolor. The art pieces above and below were created by seniors Kevin Aquilo and Elise Engly. 
The end results are gorgeous.
The sweet bird above was done by sophomore Samantha Arias.
