What we're about

Fascinated by ideas and want to communicate them better?

Curious about concepts and want to see them depicted in drawing form?

Join us for an hour, bring your favourite pen or marker and sketch along!

WHAT IS SKETCHNOTING?
Sketchnoting, or visual note-taking, combines words with pictures in everyday notes to boost learning, memory and understanding. Sketchnoting is a practice that can improve your visual thinking and communication skills over time.

DRAWING SKILLS REQUIRED?
Drawing skills are NOT required!!! You will pick these up naturally over time, so don’t worry :-)

IS THIS FOR YOU?
This group is for you if you’re a curious individual who wants to upgrade your ability to communicate or think through problems via sketching and the use of pictures.
