Sketching Bootcamp: Visual Facilitation for Business

March 6, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

WHY A BOOTCAMP?

Sketching is the fastest and easiest way to convey your ideas, but many of us don’t feel comfortable at the front of the room, at the whiteboard. In one dynamic day, you’ll get exposed to the fundamentals of capturing conversations and conveying ideas.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

 

1. Visual Vocabulary

How to sketch and represent people, places and things to quickly convey meaning

2. Using Light

How a basic understanding of light and shadow can add depth and strength to your sketches

3. Visual Storytelling:

Frames and Formats for conveying ideas as metaphors and organizing them for quick communication

4. Sketching Motor skills

How to use your body in relation to your drawing surface to confidently make  clean lines and shapes

 

IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

Sketching is one thing that everyone can do to make their meetings be more engaging and effective. Graphic recording, visual facilitation and sketching ideas is for everyone. It’s not about art; it’s about communication.
