Scratch Art

The fourth graders created this scratch art in two steps. First they covered a piece of paper in oil pastels. Then, they painted on a layer of black tempera paint mixed with a little bit of dish soap.  The soap helps the paint scratch off better. After it dried completely, they used toothpicks to scratch images of leaves into the paint.
