LIVE ONLINE CLASS: Introduction to graphic journalism

Wednesday 3rd June, 10am-12 noon

The course
This two-hour session over Zoom is for anyone with an interest in working with drawing and illustration to report the news. You’ll get an overview of the fundamentals, followed by a series of reportage drawing exercises with tutor feedback that will help you draw quickly on location and build stories in images. Should you want more in-depth tuition, we are also running a day-long masterclass in graphic journalism at Somerset House in London on 14th November 2020.

The class is limited to a maximum of 15 attendees.

The course is for adults only. No particular artistic skills or previous training in art is required, but a willingness to draw is essential.

The tutor
Carol Adlam is a UK-based writer and illustrator who specialises in reportage artwork, graphic novels and book illustration. She’s drawn graphic journalism pieces for Delayed Gratification (some recent examples here and here) and is currently the writer and illustrator-in-residence at the University of St Andrews (2020). In 2018 she was a winner at the World Illustration Awards and from 2017-2018 she was the visiting artist at the National Archives in Kew.

Tickets cost £15 + VAT for subscribers and £30 + VAT for non-subscribers. We’ll ask for your delivery postcode to verify your subscription when you book your ticket. Click here to buy tickets
