Did you know that almost 75% of the neurons in our brain that process sensory information - smell, taste, touch, hearing, sight - are dedicated to vision? Our brains are wired for visual images!!! This fact makes expressing ideas in pictures a key skill in driving innovation.
Do you wish you could draw better? Do you want to feel confident in expressing your ideas through pictures? Join us for an evening of basic drawing that will boost your creative confidence. This hands-on session will begin with basic drawing skills and end with creating storyboard sketches.
Dan Roam, author of The Back of the Napkin, says the following about developing ideas:
- There is no more powerful way to discover a new idea than to draw a simple picture
- There is no faster way to develop and test an idea than to draw a simple picture
- There is no more effective way to share an idea with people than to draw a simple picture
We will be raffling off a few copies of Dan Roam's Unfolding the Napkin to help you further develop your drawing skills after you leave the session!
