Professional Development Workshop


Sketchnoting is a style of visual note taking that has become very popular recently.  The process consists of using images, text, and color to capture the key points of a conversation, whether it is a key note speaker, a panel discussion, webinar capture, or even taking notes while reading a book!  Visuals can also be used to share ideas with others in presentations and meetings.

Visuals are a powerful way to organize your thoughts and to share information.  Research proves that we retain information in more meaningful ways when we hear AND see it.  Join us in the low tech, hands on workshop to learn about:

  • visual language
  • color theory
  • the basics of lettering
  • creating simple images that convey meaning
  • connectors, boxes, and borders

 You’ll leave with the skills to begin to sketchnote immediately as well as the tools to do it with!
