Do you admire visual note-taking? Do you swoon over people who can communicate with drawings and diagrams? Do you appreciate it when somebody fearlessly picks up a pen and illustrates a complicated concept?

Wanna be that person?

You’re in luck: Whiteboard Warrior is back! In this class, you’ll learn the building blocks you need to start your practice as a sketcher and visual communicator. By the end of the class, you’ll be able to confidently plan, create, and share visual notes. Our goal is to help you make your personal note-taking style way more awesome. We’ll also touch upon using visual notes for teaching, brainstorming, and group facilitation.

We’ll build your visual vocabulary; introduce you to the tools of the trade; practice, critique, and practice some more; and leave you with resources and communities that will help you continue your journey.
