My Art 1 Students have finally completed their scratch art projects.  I decided to post this particular piece because I had the sense to take pictures through the development of this piece.  I first have the kids draw on paper, they then trace it onto poster board.  After they color the poster board they cover it with ink.  They retrace the drawing which allows them to see where the original drawing is.  I then have them look through a grid they created with different patterns.  They choose the patterns they like and scratch the patterns out on different sections of their drawings.
I'm very happy with the results and I believe the kids are too.
Hope you have a nice weekend.


  1. Nice blog posting. I'm just blogwalking and very interesting to stop here and read your post. I like this.

    But, dont forget to give us your comment into my blog ya.

    Thanks for share.

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

  3. This is such a cool project. I just don't quite understand how they retrace the drawing, though. Do they place it over the inked posterboard and trace over the lines and it shows through underneath? What do they scratch the designs with? I can't wait to try this!
