Three-Day Metalpoint Drawing with Koo Schadler
June 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - June 5, 2019 @ 4:00 pm EDT
The traditional technique of metalpoint (also known as silverpoint i.e. drawing with a piece of silver) is increasingly popular. This workshop offers students the opportunity to draw with a variety of metal tips including silver, brass, and copper. Koo will explain all aspects of the medium: types of surfaces to work on, how to tint a ground, adding highlights and colors to a drawing, and how to speed up the tarnishing process. Students will make for themselves several different drawing surfaces starting from scratch. Each student goes home with Koo’s metalpoint instruction booklet and a complete metalpoint kit to continue working in the medium.
Open to all levels, from beginning to experienced draftsmen.
