Silverpoint is a metal media that can leave a mark on the prepared abrasive surface and is known for its fine, delicate strokes as well as high archival qualities. Many silverpoint drawings by Old Masters can be seen in museums. All supplies will be provided for this class if you are a beginning student: stylus with silver point, paper, and suggested subjects. You may also bring your own simple image if you wish.
Olga will be guiding you with making appropriate strokes to make a beautiful rendering of your subject. The supplies charge will be $20 additional payable at class directly to Olga. If you already have supplies, you can bring them to class.
Olga Ryabstova is a member of Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California and the American Society of Botanical Artists and has been teaching silverpoint techniques for several years.
