Graphic journalism workshop

During the past few weekends, Eduardo Salavisa, sketcher, and Alexandra Prado Coelho, journalist, have been teaching a graphic journalism workshop in Museu Bordalo Pinheiro in Lisboa. The workshop is inspired on the weekly column “Crónica Urbana” printed in Público, where a journalist writes a chronicle to be coupled with a sketch done on site by an illustrator.

Durante os últimos fins-de-semana, o Eduardo Salavisa, desenhador, e a Alexandra Prado Coelho, jornalista, têm estado a leccionar uma oficina de jornalismo gráfico no Museu Bordalo Pinheiro em Lisboa. A oficina é inspirada na coluna semanal “Crónica Urbana” do Público, em que um jornalista escreve uma crónica acompanhada de um desenho feito no local por um ilustrador.

We spent the second and third classes at Lisboa’s horseback riding club (Sociedade Hípica Portuguesa), gathering information for a story to be compiled in a single reportage with sketches done on site. The next post will feature my results for this final assignment. Stay tuned!

Passámos a segunda e a terceira sessões na Sociedade Hípica Portuguesa, no Campo Grande, juntando elementos para uma história, para ser compilada numa única reportagem com desenhos feitos no local. O próximo post terá a minha reportagem resultante deste trabalho final. Fiquem atentos!

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
