Visual thinking: an anti-drawing class

December 13, 2013 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

This is a class for all of you non-artists who need to create visuals in your work. We will show you how drawing can help you communicate challenges, provide clarity and insight and get to better solutions, faster.
We’ll teach you fundamentals and give you actionable skills so that you can be confident getting in front of any whiteboard or feel fearless in front of a blank page. One thing we hear over and over again is “I can’t draw”. Even if you’re at the stick figure skill level, this class will take you through easy steps to master any problem by drawing simple pictures.
The Visual Aphabet and how to use it
The six problem types and how to draw them
Collaborative drawing – how to bring this into your teams and meetings


9:30 AM – coffee, opening remarks and introductions
10:00AM – the visual alphabet, drawing best practices
11:00AM – The six problem types and how to draw them
12:00PM – Project work – group problem-solving with drawing
1:00PM – go back to your office and get drawing!
