Hey folks, I'll be in Johnson City, TX tomorrow from 1-4 teaching a scratchboard class. Check it out and sign up (small fee) still have room for a few more. http://www.davinoanddavinci.com/
I'm also going to be at Jerry's Artarama in Austin, TX Friday from noon-3pm giving a demo of scratchboard for Ampersand Art. If you can't make the class, come to the demo. What's the difference you might say? The class on Thursday will be more intensive, and all will leave with a finished (or close to finished) piece. We will be focusing on one or two designs during the course of 3 hours.
The demo at Jerry's is a bit more hectic, as it is right in the store with people coming and going. You'll be able to try the product, but completing a drawing or getting my full attention is a bit harder. It's a good time to get an introduction to the medium, pick up a sample and ask questions. No matter what you do, try to come to one or both. Scratchboard is fun, and instantly gratifying. And unlike most instantly gratifying things, it's really good for you! Most everyone can do this, and I'm happy to share what I know!
