During a two-week study of Scratchboard, the students at HMS had a great time. All students learned how scratchboard is made, how to transfer an image onto the board, and how to use scratch tools to create a desired result. The students began this unit of study by creating small symbols and images. Then, they progressed to larger more complex images as they acquired different techniques to create different types of line quality and texture. The final product required students to draw an image or animal, transfer and scratch out their idea. Students also had to utilize positive and negative space to enhance their image. At the end of this process, each student self-assessed their final product following a rubric. All students had a great time during this unit of study.
