Scratch It!

scratchboard paper, nibs, watercolor

Once again the kids outdid themselves with this assignment.
If you've never used it before, it's a poster board coated with black ink.
You use two different shaped nibs to scratch off the ink to get to the white paper.
Then I have the students bring in watercolor to make it really pop.
For extra credit they can matt it up.
Senior Anne Allan did just that in her piece above.
It's magnificent Anne!

Senior Justin Hwang drew this beautiful bird, then bordered it with gold paper to give it a really dimensional effect.

This gorgeous work above was created by senior Jasmine Zhao.
And love how she matted it up.
Her craftsmanship was impeccable.

And we end with senior Cathy Luo's exceptional lion.
Wow!  Incredible work Cathy!
These kids really knocked this assignment out of the park, and make my job a joy!
