Sketchnote to Learn!

Imagine being in a calligraphy class or workshop taking notes, but all the pages look the same. It’s hard to look back and remember what you wrote.

What makes one line of text differ from the rest?

Learn to sketchnote! It’s a great learning tool you can use when taking notes in class and workshops, journaling vacations, and telling a visual story.

In this session we will explore the tools and high-level techniques that professional sketchnoters use.
