The demo will introduce scratchboard art to teens and adults. It is a form of engraving on a black or colored clayboard to produce dramatic effects. The tools involved are user-friendly. Methods such as hatching/crosshatching and stippling for texture will be introduced in the demo.

Adzia has been combining art and nature since childhood. She is certified in Botanical Art & Illustration through the Morton Arboretum and has been a featured artist in the Nature Artist Guild show.
