Middle School art students just finished a labor-intensive project, creating abstracted animal designs on scratch board. First they practiced drawing silhouettes of their chosen animals. Then they transferred them to scratch board. Using special tools, they scratched away all the white areas. They tried to create an interesting arrangement of black, white, and patterned shapes that would represent the spirit of their animal. "I think you'll be inspired by these students' powerful artwork," said Miss Penny!
