This wonderful place and the neighborhood offers new possibilities for us. We have lots of plans but will start on June 14 with  a day about A M S T E R D A M + M A P  M A K I N G.

DATE: 14 June 2016

TIME:  10.00 – 14.30

PRIZE: € 75,– inc BTW | lunch | artmaterials | handouts

PLACE: Atelier OOSTERBOSCH

Vinkenstraat 154 • Amsterdam

SUBJECT: Amsterdam, make your own map or product inspired on  Amsterdam

We want to start the day having a short walk around this neighbourhood collecting
reference material for your own map. ( ± 30 minutes) So bring your camera and favorite drawing material to make some sketches.

Back inside we will give you some relevant theoretical background about map making and illustration as a profession.

our theory subjects will be:

the editorial ‘market’ and acquisition

making and selling your own products / prints

why (artdirectors) choose illustration (instead of photography)

But of course they day will be spend mostly in making your own illustration: an illustrated map can be a very valuable portfolio piece. You will bring your own reference material after our work (and we can give you some more input of course) and we will guide you to transfer your sketches / photo reference to your personal, illustrated map. If it is of  interest to you we will also show you some basic photoshop tricks to finish up your work.

If you want to find out if illustration as a profession, work on a strong portfolio piece, try out new techniques and styles or just ‘go back to the drawing table’ the day may be just right for you.

Working this day on a ‘product illustration’ like a poster or set of cards -inspired by Amsterdam- is of course possible too. If you are interested you can learn some simple photoshop basics to make your work digital and even print ready.

If you would like to know more or subscribe to our illustration day Tuesday June the 14th please mail Valesca (mail@valescavanwaveren.com) or me (post@claudikessels.nl) and we hope to see you there.
