Explore the medieval sketching technique used by Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Durer with this demonstration by master artist Tom Mazzullo. Accomplished by dragging a silver rod or wire across a primed surface to achieve a subtle drawing, silverpoint is enjoying a revival after centuries of displacement by graphite. You will learn the basics, theory, and how to get started on your own silverpoint art piece.  Sat 1 p.m.-3 p.m.
