Silverpoint Technique

         Instructors: Bernard Halliwell and Kristin Jakob
       Muir Beach

       Saturday, November 4
       10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Leonardo used silverpoint and so can you. Perhaps this day will get you started.

Silverpoint is an elegant and delicate drawing technique first used by medieval scribes. The technique became popular in the Renaissance and then declined with the advent of graphite pencils. It is still relevant today, however, for those would like to have the feel of a delicate drawing. One draws with a piece of wire on a surface that has been coated with gesso or some sort of primer to give the surface a slight tooth.

Bernard Halliwell and Kristin Jakob will explore silverpoint on Saturday, November 4, 2016 in Muir Beach. There will be a $15 fee for materials, which will be provided. In addition you should bring a fine lunch. Directions will be sent out a week beforehand.

Please contact Bernard Halliwell or Kristin Jakob to reserve a space.
