Graphic Journalism – Journalist Meets Comics Artist | May 16th, 9am – 1pm, UvA Mediastudies, Room 0.16

Drawing the Times’ editor in chief, Eva Hilhorst, is giving a masterclass in graphic journalism that serves both comics artists and journalists. Drawing is a primary visual language, essential for communication and expression. Participants will get to know the intrinsic qualities of drawing and learn how to use those qualities to make a good story. Everyone knows the saying: ‘One picture is worth a thousand words’. That is very true for graphic journalism. Drawn stories give a lot of visual information. Another key element in graphic journalism is its ability to engage the reader in a personal story. Participants are challenged to use their drawing skills to make compelling, empathetic stories. Remember that you don’t need to be Rembrandt to make a good drawing. Also people that didn’t draw since their childhood are invited to pick up their pencils.
  • Everyone is welcome to join this masterclass, no previous drawing skills are needed.
