Favored in the Renaissance before the invention of the graphite pencil, silverpoint steps into the 21st century with improved, inexpensive tools, materials and techniques. Trail a fine line of real sterling silver on paper you have prepared yourself in class. Silverpoint is an elegant choice for small, detailed work, realistic or abstract. Learn to apply surface ground, along with stroke techniques. Trace provided images or draw your own to create a suite of small drawings which fit into your own hand-painted origami portfolio.

This is a rare opportunity to learn silverpoint drawing. Classes like this don’t grow on every bush these days, and this one is a great bargain for a day-long workshop! Best of all, expertise in drawing is NOT required. The class is for everyone, even those who say, “I wish I could draw!”
