This class will introduce you to the art of Silverpoint drawing. This technique originated in the 14th-15th centuries in the Netherlands and Germany. Many of the Master painters used this medium for their underdrawings as there were no graphite pencils available at that time. This medium involves drawing with a silver wire which is inserted into a mechanical pencil. The drawing surface is on board that has been treated with a Silverpoint ground and sanded to a smooth finish. The nature of these drawings is to oxidize over time and become more sepia in tone. The supplies for this class will be provided but it would be good to have a sketchpad and pencil handy.
*Please note that this class is limited to eight students
