About This Class

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.

Takeaways

  • Understand how to use basic elements to sketch objects, figures and almost anything
  • Learn how to create graphic recordings in meetings, events and at work
  • Learn how to listen for the big ideas and communicate them visually
  • Practice drawing exercises and improve your visual vocabulary

Prereqs & Preparation

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!

Please bring a pencil and a fine-line marker.

He enjoys extreme sports like acrylic painting and brewing beer.
