Masterclass in reportage illustration with George Butler

Sunday 14th April

Course is now full

George is a celebrated reportage artist, scratching away in his drawing book whilst the bombs explode around him. Seriously. We can’t guarantee bombs but getting out and about in South London will be scary enough for many of us. He’ll show us his practical methods with ink and inspire us to work the narrative of any scene before us. Essential for anyone wanting to create powerful images that tell a story.

George will demonstrate and explain the practicalities of what he does and encourage us in his favoured medium. He works in ink and uses a variety of implements to make the marks, from ink pens to sponges and lollipop sticks all of which keeps the work looking edgy. Ink provides the immediacy and speed he requires to grab the moment.

At the end of the day tea will be on offer back at the studio where we can review what we have learned.

We will provide some materials but you may want to bring your own drawing book and as pens are very personal you may wish to acquire some like this too.
