This month's EBSQ Live:Scratchboard: Colour
hosted by EBSQ Self-Representing Artists and Naquaiya
Monday, April 9, at 9pm Eastern (6pm Pacific)
EBSQ Chat Room
"If you attended February's LIVE you learned how to go about doing a drawing in black and white scratchboard. This month Naquaiya, will demonstrate how to add colour to a scratchboard piece. Scratchboard is a versatile and neat medium and most of all, it's fun. If you like watercolor, pen and ink, or silkscreening, you will most likely enjoy scratchboard. Aside from a different "look", it can reproduce very well which gives you, the artist, all kinds of options. This presentation we will learn about a variety of products and techniques available to the scratchboard artist to add color to black and white scratchboard art. Some traditional materials are used that may be familiar to you, but some may be surprises. I'm going to be working with this particular drawing called "Window Seat" because it employs several techniques in one drawing. I will also provide you with resources for materials."
Naquaiya has been drawing seriously in the scratchboard medium since 1996. She has exhibited in galleries and juried art shows across southern California and the Southwest as well as the Bay area. Her scratchboard drawings have won numerous awards and her portfolio includes corporate art collections as well as international sales. She has worked for Ampersand Art demonstrating claybord black at trade shows and has also demonstrated for many Los Angeles art clubs throughout southern California. Some of her zebra art appears in Charles Ewing's book, "The New Scratchboard" (under the name Michele Wise).
Naquaiya is presently writing several books on scratchboard and children's books using her scratchboard illustrations.
LIVE! is open to members and non-members and we encourage all who are interested to attend. The evening starts at promptly at 9 PM EST so be sure to arrive a few minutes early.
