East Coast Scratchboard Demos

 One of my favorite artworks from the Jerry's West Orange, NJ Demo.
 This little gal fell in love with Ampersand Art scratchbord. I really enjoyed watching her and her mother discover how much fun this medium is.

In June I got to travel to the East Coast to teach Scratchboard classes at three stores. AI Friedman in Port Chester, NY. Jerry's Artist Outlet in West Orange, NJ. And Jerry's in West Hartford, CT. I had a ball. Great stores, staff and participants. A lot of fun artwork was done by all. Here are just a few of the photos I took when I wasn't teaching and scratchin'. Check out all the Ampersand Art products here. It took a while to post this as I've been busy scratchin' out 75 dogs for the soon to come Dog Scratchin' book of rescued dogs and their stories. (drop the g folks...I just discovered there is a blog for Dog Scratching... that's not mine!) It's hotter than hot here, just like everywhere else. I'm learning to live with it. I don't want to join the inevitable migration to the north. Stay out of the sun everyone!

Great blog! I'm not sure if you're even on Twitter, but if so please join us tonight for an Arkansas Women Bloggers Twitter party!


We need more artists at our conference next month, as well - join us if you can!

Hi Beth, yes I'm on twitter...but honestly don't tweet much. I just don't see the point of it.
I'm busy putting together an illustrated book right now...so doing anything outside of that is not possible. Good luck with your conference and party!
