Create and Make Workshop: Drawing in Silverpoint

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Learn a new skill and have a great time doing it!

Want to get out of the house and try something new? Always wanted to explore your creative side but worry about “not being able to draw?” Look no further!!  The Create and Make Workshops are here and are guaranteed to be tons of adult-creative fun that will shake up your routine and teach you something new.

Hey, the kids are going back to school, so why can’t we adults learn something new too!?!

Workshops kick off next Tuesday with Drawing in Silverpoint taught by Susan Jones who is a Natural Science illustrator and instructor of botanical illustration at the University of Washington Extension Program. The fun starts at 7pm at 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline WA 98155 (in the Shoreline Center -  south Classroom wing). All supplies and materials will be included, so bring yourself (or round up a bunch of friends) and your sense of fun!

Drawing in Silverpoint with Susan Jones 
Tuesday, Sept. 9 or Wednesday, Sept. 10

In Medieval and Renaissance times, before graphite (“lead”) pencils were available, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci used a piece of silver to sketch in their design for a painting on a canvas or create drawings on prepared papers. Today, you learn to draw with a sterling silver to create distinctive soft marks that warm and darken over time, creating a nature drawing that develops a beautiful patina with age.  Get Tickets to Drawing in Silverpoint.
