Three-Day Silverpoint Workshop
The traditional technique of metalpoint (also known as silverpoint; i.e. drawing with a piece of silver) is increasingly popular. This workshop offers students the opportunity to draw with a variety of metal tips including silver, brass, and copper. Koo Schadler will demonstrate and explain all aspects of the medium: types of surfaces to work on, how to increase abrasion in a ground, adding highlights and color to a drawing, and how to speed up the tarnishing process. Students will make for themselves several different drawing surfaces starting from scratch. Each students goes home with Koo’s in-depth, metalpoint instruction booklet and a complete metalpoint kit to continue working in the medium. Open to all levels, from beginning to experienced draftsmen.
(Materials fee: $70 payable to instructor on first day – cash or check, please. Includes instructional book and complete metalpoint drawing kit.)
