This workshop will provide you with basic drawing techniques needed for you to adopt, evolve and share your own visual vocabulary including

During the workshop we'll encourage you to discover your own visual vocabulary with an array of hints and techniques which will support idea generation and problem solving when returning to your team and/or organisation.

Continuing your journey...

Taking your first visual steps is a big step! Exploring and practicing what you have learnt during this workshop will ensure your visual thinking journey continues and flourishes but sometimes it's daunting to travel alone, right?

To support the ongoing journey to presenting clear, attractive and dynamic visuals we offer an additional advance module to all participants of this course. You will benefit from a 1-2-1 deep dive session with your facilitator, work towards a final assignment (based on your needs) and finish with a de-brief of the visuals created.
