Saturday’s workshop was S-graffiti (in Italian sgaffiare means to scratch + graffiti and you get our made up word- sgraffiti). The kids made their own scratch boards and etched out their art.
Though it’s easy to make, it takes a little time and patience since the paper needs to be covered with a thick layer of crayon first and then painted over with tempera.
After the paint fully dries, the kids used a shish kabob stick and scratched away. It was a fun experience to work on a black surface, scratching out a lighter design and thinking backwards for the first time was definitely a challenge for everyone.
