This studio exploration invites participants of all levels and creative inclinations to learn and/or explore this unique drawing practice. Silverpoint is a traditional drawing technique still used today that was first used by Medieval scribes then by artists of the 14th century and through the ages. It is one of several types of metalpoint techniques where a drawing is made by dragging and etching a metal styli on a prepared surface.
