This course investigates the medieval drawing technique of metal point. As a delicate and indelible media, silverpoint drawing teaches students about the purity of line - isolated on a smooth, prepared drawing surface. Students also gain insight into pre-graphite era drawing. Students learn to float their image and develop hatch marks. Examples of masterworks, such as those of A. Legros, are referenced. Studies in the figure enable each participant to become part of the resurgence of interest in silverpoint within contemporary figure art. Model fees extra.
