Adult Masterclass: Editorial Illustration with Joanna Layla

Get the inside scoop on the world of editorial illustration.

When, Where

Get the inside scoop on the world of editorial illustration in our September masterclass with Joanna Layla.

You’ll get hands-on experience of responding to a brief while developing an understanding of the often fast-paced field of editorial illustration.

Joanna will guide you step-by-step through the editorial process through a series of drawing exercises. From drafting layouts and choosing compositions and colour palettes to working with art directors, you’ll learn the techniques and tools needed to achieve striking editorial images. 

The structured session will use case studies and examples from Joanna’s own body of editorial work to give a fun, inspiring and experiential taste of editorial illustration.

Materials will be provided but students are also welcome to bring any favourite materials and a sketchbook.
