Drawing with silverpoint can be as simple and easy as drawing with a graphite pencil. Silverpoint utilizes a sterling silver wire to produce fine lines on a prepared ground. Over time, the lines tarnish and take on a coppery hue, causing drawings to “glow” due to the thin layers of silver reflecting light. Students will be provided with a silverpoint stylus and will learn how to prepare paper to receive the silver marks, techniques of mark-making, building up layers of tone, and erasing or modifying their work. No experience required!

Student Supply List: All equipment and materials will be provided
