Tools: Visual Journalism

Visual Journalism was inspired by an innovative Master Degree course by that name originated by Robert Weaver, an influential illustrator renowned for reportage assignments. Field trips to locations, drawings made on the spot and an emphasis on insightful observation are combined with techniques that enhance the work created on the scene, providing an alternate approach to photography based illustration. Getting the story by directly witnessing events that are of public interest is a valuable and demanding skill - a fresh and stimulating addition to the repertoire and portfolio of the dedicated illustrator. Open to all majors.
