Credits: 3

More than simply recording what our eyes see, reportage illustration, or visual journalism, tells a story about place through the hand and mind of the artist. In this course, students will visit various NYC locations to draw, journal, and document the environment they observe around them. Graphic reportage can depict everyday life and people in the city from a journalistic point of view, recording moments in history, and with a political intent, revealing social structures through visual observation. The drawings can capture the visual world in time through multiple images and/or palimpsests. Examples of reportage illustration from the past to the present will be discussed during informal weekly lectures on site. Through drawing, writing, and investigating, students will document the neighborhoods and street life of NYC, creating a story of the city that is uniquely theirs to tell.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Some seats are reserved for Illustration majors.
