How to draw for meaning – Patricia Kambitsch
Sometimes words are not enough to fully engage in the important conversations of our lives. In this session to deepen visual communication skills, you will learn simple techniques to co-create meaning with others visually. Together we will practice using hand-drawn visual icons and metaphors to create simple visual notes and wall-sized charts to map and discover meaning with others.
During this hands-on workshop you will practice
- Mixing words and images
- Building a toolkit of visual metaphors and icons
- Connecting ideas and showing relationships
- Creating visual hierarchies
- Discovering that you already have the skills to draw
Can’t draw at all? Already an expert? No problem. All levels welcome.
