Silverpoint Drawing with Dr Charles Zuill

On Saturday, July 15 from 2-4pm at Bermuda National Gallery, join twelve-time Bermuda Biennial artist and Founding BNG Trustee Dr Charles Zuill to discover the age-old technique of metalpoint drawing, which was first used by medieval scribes before the invention of pencils.

Silverpoint drawings are made by dragging a silver rod or wire across a surface, often prepared with gesso, depositing a thin layer of metal on the surface. A sensitive and delicate medium, silverpoint is remarkable for creating drawings with fine lines and subtle shading. This is an incredible opportunity to explore the medium under the knowledgeable guidance of Dr Zuill, Bermuda’s only contemporary silverpoint artist.

The cost is $60 for BNG members and $75 for non-members. This workshop is appropriate for those with some prior drawing experience. All participants will take home a silverpoint stylus, to continue their metalpoint journey. Limited to 8 spaces. Ages 16+.
