The International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA) is launched!!

A few days ago, after many months of hard, behind the scenes work, we now have a society to represent scratchboard artists all over the world. We are taking members at ‘associate’ (open to all) and ‘active’ (juried) levels now, and in March of every year current ‘active’ members may choose to apply for ‘signature’ or ‘master’ levels. All information you need about the membership levels, goals of ISSA and other information about scratchboard are on our website at


Happy scratching!!
