Art I Project
Students demonstrated their knowledge of how to create texture through the use of hatching, crosshatching, and stippling and a scratch art project.
- Pre-made scratch art paper. Some scratch art paper only requires the use of wooden styluses and some require you to use a metal scratching tool. We used the softer paper. Word of warning, if the paper is shiny then it is probably a lot harder to scratch.
- Wooden styluses for scratching
- Photo sources. I checked out a bunch of animal books from the school library and let the students find animals that they liked.
- First, students must find their own photo source. I had the kids spend part of a class selecting their photos from library books. After that I photocopied everyone's individual photo and gave them the photocopy the next day.
- Some student chose to draw their animals out on printer paper first and then transfer it over to the scratch art paper. Others preferred to just jump right into it my lighly drawing their animal in pencil on their scratch paper.
- Next students used the wooden styluses to scratch the black ink off their paper to reveal the colors underneath.
