Last year I focused on the children's book illustrator Brian Pinkney. He uses
scratch board and I had some of the pre-made scratch board for the kids to use.
This year I did crayon engraving with a stained glass. / architecture sort of
unit. I showed the kids pictures of the rose window at Notre Dame and also
some modern stained glass. I have also done bugs- a pattern/ texture lesson.
My colleague art teacher is going Egyptian hieroglyphics on student prepared
scratch art paper this week.
