New Course Graphic Journalism starting in May


Online Course Graphic Journalism

In the last half year Drawing the Times’ editor Eva Hilhorst taught several online courses in Graphic Journalism. Every Tuesday (English) and Thursday (Dutch) evening a group of eager students from all over Europe and one from Tanzania, got together through their Zoom screens to engage in the art of Graphic Journalism. During the courses they learned how to use the unique qualities of drawing as a medium to tell a journalistic story. The courses were received so well that we are planning a new one.

Some reviews of participants:

“I found your course great and the group very important for the progress and the attachment to the work as well. I did learn a lot and got an energy boost from working with this.”

“About your exercises: I really, really like them! They are inspiring and I very much profited also from the discussions with the other participants.”

I learned to bring both my writing and my drawing skills into a new field, and my journalistic and artistic experimental expertise found a new accommodation.’

8 week course Graphic Journalism by Eva Hilhorst.
8 Tuesday evenings, from May 18th, from 7.30 until 9.30 PM (GMT+1). The course will be in English. Inscription fee: €325

This course teaches both (comics) artists and writers how to use drawing in journalistic work. Drawing has unique qualities that can be used in different forms, from very personal graphic memoirs to insightful infographics. The classes will be a combination of theory, inspiration from others, and exercises. In the course of eight weeks, the students will work on a story that will be published on Drawing the Times.

The course will take place online: due to corona regulations the course cannot take place live.
