Kick off the New Year at the first 2015 sketchnoting session!

This evening event is structured time for learning, exploring and improving our sketchnote practice.

At this meetup we'll do a quick intro to visual note-taking, then practice elements of visual vocabulary like lettering and concept images in a series of Rapid Rounds. After that we'll jump into sketchnoting a TED talk. And then close the evening with a collaborative gallery where we'll share our work and offer constructive critique.

If you're new to sketchnoting, this is a great way to get started. And if you're an expert, it's a fun time to practice and share with others. All skill levels welcome!

:: Here's the plan ::

• Welcome, get to know each other & setup [6:30-6:45ish]
• Warm-up/rapid rounds (quick 2-5 min practice sessions on lettering, pictures and concepts)
• Quick critique of work
• Long session, sketchnote a TED talk (~15 min + 5 min to finish up)
• Gallery of sketchnotes & open critique (15-20 min)
• Wrap-up, feedback & what to do next time
