What to expect?


You don’t need to be an artist to master the basics of a visual thinking. It’s drawing, not rocket science. The motor skills you use to write a shopping list or sign a birthday card are no different from those that you need to draw a picture.

We’ll start the session with some simple warm-up exercises, learning about the importance of visual thinking, building your own visual vocabulary, and continue to gradually extent the level of detail and complexity in your drawings.

Registration deadline:

This workshop will cover:

  • Building a basic visual vocabulary

  • Improve your drawing and design skills

  • Get an introduction to frameworks

  • Covering basics of people, icons, and shapes



The session will include song-breaks, and a 50 minute exercise break, as well as feedback to your drawings.

Participants will need:

  • A working webcam and enough light, to share drawings on-screen

  • Stack of plain A4 paper and a thick black pen

  • A work flow to either (a) taking photos OR (b) scanning drawings, then transferring them to your computer to upload via collaboration platform
