Workshop Description

Join best-selling author and global infodoodler Sunni Brown for a hands-on, interactive experience designed to unlock your native capacity to create and apply visual language for better thinking and faster problem-solving. Based on a book called The Doodle Revolution featured in The New York TimesFast Company and Oprah, this session will take students all the way from the basics of visual language to a form of visual note-taking that supports learning and comprehension, memory, concentration, engagement and effective presentation. Use “infodoodling" to learn more effectively, get relevant insights and dive into your world in an entirely different way. Non-artists are not only welcomed but will get exuberant high-fives for showing up.
