Virtual Illustration: Op Ed/Editorial (Online)

January 10, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - January 31, 2022 @ 9:00 pm


Leanza – Mondays, Jan 10 -31, 6:30-9pm (Online)

Our world is changing at high speed – we are making history, right & left. But left to the news media, the story gets/is reduced to colorless sound bites. In class, you’ll get to chronicle your own history/her-story for posterity – visually!
So, what is “Op-Ed”, anyway? “An op-ed article is …[one where] the author states their opinion about a given topic, often with a view to persuade the reader of their way of thinking…” – Benjamin Spall
The job of an op-ed illustration, then, is to capture the essence of the opinion, (in this case, yours).
Techniques will be offered to help you sort out your thoughts & feelings, and turn your passionate opinions into strong visual statements.
Basic drawing skills are all you need. Individual guidance is provided using Zoom’s breakout rooms. Artwork is shared via Google Photos, or screen-shared if you have drawing software. We’ll have on-camera demos and group critiques in each class.


This class is conducted online! A computer with audio, video, and internet functionality is required.

All ArtSchool registrations have a $3 processing fee added upon check-out.

ArtsCenter members receive 15% off of the cost of this course!
