Audience Age


Online Version:  I am working on a virtual presentation "podcast" style where I show images of Old Master artwork, and have a "live" demonstrations of techniques.  I am also looking to offer a pre-recorded Q&A type program with questions sent in beforehand, where I use historical replicas and images to answer.

Please contact me for info.

Learn about the Old Master artists such as Cennini, Durer, and Da Vinci in this unique presentation. Studying from surviving period manuals, treatises and manuscripts, Andy Volpe showcases some of the drawing techniques such as silverpoint and feather quill pen in use from 1400 - 1600 in a live 'working' demonstration where you can see the process in action and even try it yourself.

A power point slide-lecture with a demonstration is optional.

Mileage costs, including tolls and parking fees if applicable, will be included in total cost. A multiple lectures or all-day fee is available.
