Drawing Botanicals in Silverpoint
with Kathie Miranda

Silverpoint, a drawing medium used by the old masters, is enjoying a revival by artists today. Styluses containing a sharpened sterling silver wire produce delicate pale lines that tarnish over time to golden browns. Drawings have a lovely glow due to thin layers of silver reflecting light. Learn traditional ways to apply silverpoint to a simple ground prepared in class and to add color to silverpoint drawings to enhance the design. Students are encouraged to bring a few seasonal natural objects such as plants, cacti, mushrooms, fruits, gourds, curled dried leaves, or seed pods.

This class is cancelled.
