DAD Scratch Art Card

scratch art dad card
This is my favorite way for students to make a scratch art picture, first a black marker drawing, then layers of oil pastel on top.

 

MATERIALS
• Card stock paper
• Black Sharpie marker, chisel tip
• Wood stylus or skewer
• Oil pastels, I prefer the Portfolio brand

DIRECTIONS

1. Students wrote D-A-D in either block letters or very fat stick letters on their card stock paper with a permanent black marker.

2. Students chose a combination of light pastel colors to color the inside and outside of the letters.

3. A dark color (dark blue, dark purple, or black, etc.) is used to cover the entire page again. Heaving coloring creates the best results.

4. Students used a wooden stick to scratch their designs. This could be just lines, or patterns and writing too. Be warned, this is messy, but lots of fun! I used it for kinder through 4th graders and all walked away with a card they were really proud of.
