Sean Kenan’s scratchboard art reveals the line in stunning black and white. The effect is similar to wood cut or wood engraving.
To create a scratchboard, a thin layer of clay is applied to a board and covered in indian ink. Scratching the black surface reveals the white clay surface underneath. The works are not prints: each one is an original creation.
No experience in art or scratchboard needed: beginners welcome. All materials provided.
$110 + booking fee/ $20 materials (paid at workshop)
His training in graphic design and his enduring interest in drawing and woodcarving led him to experiment with scratchboard, and now he’s sharing his skills through this workshop.
If you saw his wonderful (and sell-out) exhibition in April, here’s a chance to try your hand at this creative form.
