Metalpoint by Tom Mazzullo © artist website>

Silverpoint is a Medieval drawing medium rarely practiced by artists today. The technique allows the artist to design with very fine lines of pale-gray color on a suitably prepared surface. While initially a silverpoint drawing resembles a graphite drawing, a drawing in silver left open to the air will begin to tarnish and the dull gray lines will take on a warm, sepia hue.

Metalpoint drawing can be done with any soft metal – silver, gold, and copper are common, and exotic metals like platinum, bismuth, and magnesium can also be used.

About the instructor. “I love drawing for its capabilities of directness and finesse. All my work is observational, because I believe the time spent with the object energizes and personalizes the drawing, making each drawing an intuitive reaction to a subject, full of interpretation."
