Students investigate the medieval drawing technique of metal point. As a delicate and indelible media, silver point drawing will teach students about the purity of line (isolated on a smoothly prepared drawing surface) in addition to providing insights into pre—graphite era drawing.

Students will learn to float their image and develop hatch marks. Examples of masterworks, such as A. Legros, will be referenced. Studies in the figure will enable each participant to become part of the resurgence of interest in silverpoint within contemporary figuration.
