Participants will discover the potentials and excitement of using scratchboard, where contrasts of
textures and values produce dramatic, luminous effects, and where, as in no other medium, ink is
correctible.All fear of using ink is gone.We will review tools and materials with demonstrations and
examples to show how to use them to create a vast range of textures that will portray subjects with
detail and accuracy.We will use the pen and blade to combine black and white lines and dots, which
are the basis of our ink textures.Graphite pencil rendering can achieve subtle, delicate effects.
Participants will choose their favorite subjects from nature and with them create a composition that
they will sketch, transfer, and render in ink or pencil on white scratchboard, conveying form,
shading, textures, and spacial placement of each element of their composition.Each participant will
work toward completing at least one ink and/or one graphite pencil illustration.There will be
step-by-step individual help and encouragement along the way.We will immerse ourselves in the
scratchboard medium.
