About This Workshop

Conventional note taking is fast fading. Line by line, the note taking style we were once taught in school is evaporating, and in its place an exciting alternative is emerging. Sketchnoting, or visual note taking, combines words with pictures in everyday notes to boost learning, memory and understanding.

It’s practical, it’s impactful, and it’s fun. This workshop will show you the basics, from visual techniques to hands-on exercises. Ditch the lined paper, and join the movement on better visual thinking.

No drawing skills required, just an open and willing attitude to learning, sharing your findings and diving into new concepts and sketching techniques. That's it!
