Mountainside Creative Scratch Art Class, Sept 19, 1-4PM. Instructor: Donna Housel. Cost is $40 - all supplies are included. Age 17 and older. Register at mountainsidecreative.com
If you've never worked with scratchart as a medium, this will be a new look at drawing. The Ampersand Co
is donating the clapboards and patterns for this class. We will begin slowly by learning what marks (scratches) work best on clapboard. These marks are very similar to drawing with graphite. After some practice work you will be able to choose your pattern to transfer onto the clapboards; some are small animals and some flowers. I will give you step by step instructions for whatever you choose. This is not a difficult medium but, time consuming, so patience will be a good thing to bring to class. Please wear casual clothes as there will be a little dust from the ink. You should be able to finish your scratch art piece but, if you don't, you will be well on your way to finish on your own.
