We had a great time at my 8/1 Furry, Scaly Monsters workshop at Marinwood summer camps. Our young artists started with a texture drawing exercise, in which they practiced their feathers, fur, and scales. Next, they turned their texture blob sketches into monsters by adding facial features, limbs, and monstrous horns, claws, fangs, etc. The final step was to transfer one of these monsters (or create an entirely new one!) to scratchboard to make a fun, textural subtractive drawing. Some artists chose to add real googly eyes as a final touch!
