Overview:

As early as the 12th century and before the popularity of the graphite pencil, Silverpoint was widely utilized for manuscripts, record keeping, and art. Though its usage lessened over time, its significance is still felt to this day. With guidance from fine artist Jeff Bramschreiber, join in and learn this ancient and elegant art form in the comfort and beauty of the Triton Museum, the redwood grove, and sculpture garden!


Through this technique, a metal stylus (made with metals such as silver, gold, copper, or lead) is pressed across a specially prepared surface to create fine lines. Several renowned artists, including Albrecht Durer, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Rembrandt, learned and used Silverpoint. It is truly a historical and traditional technique.
