Hatch taught sculpture and drawing in the Art and Design Department (MSU) from 1974 until 2015 when he retired. During the workshop you will learn to draw on coated medium with a stylus using various metal points, such as silver or copper. No drawing experience is needed. Free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
“Silverpoint” drawing (that includes other kinds of metal besides silver or copper, such as platinum, gold, bronze, lead, aluminum, zinc, and magnesium) is done on coated medium. Many of the lovely drawings by da Vinci and Rembrandt were created using ‘metal points’ and are still used today by artists for its fine, subtle qualities.
