Drawing in Metalpoint


SEPTEMBER 9, 10 , 12 , 13 / 1 - 4 P M

Metalpoint drawing is a centuries-old technique invented before the pencil. During the Middle Ages, metalpoint was used by scribes in monasteries; later, Da Vinci and Dürer became masters of this medium. This mini-course is taught by Carol Prusa, Professor of Art at Florida Atlantic University, and one of today’s masters of this technique. Whether you want to explore an ancient technique, develop your drawing skills, or both, Drawing in Metalpoint offers creative opportunities for all adult participants.

Workshop Admission: $120 / $100 Museum Members. Attending all four sessions is recommended.
