Do you struggle with the layout of your visual notes? What points and visuals go where? Why are some things we capture larger than others? Let us demystify how we arrange our notes into clear compositions in this 90-minute workshop. We’ll walk you through the fundamental concepts that inform composition in visual note-taking and introduce you to our favorite four go-to compositions (and when to use them).
This workshop is for people who want to learn this foundational concept of visual note-taking; we won’t be teaching other skills essential to taking visual notes in this workshop. If you’ve already taken our visual note-taking 101 or Brainstorming workshops, this workshop will be a good way to enforce and practice composition skills, but there may be some content overlap.
We’ll be teaching this workshop with accessible materials in mind.
Something to draw on:
- Can be a sketchbook, or loose paper, but make sure you have a lot of blank pages to work with.
- The bigger, the better, but make sure your page is at least 8.5"x11.”
Black markers to write with:
- Correction tape
- Color markers that won’t bleed when used with your black markers (one light color, one medium color, and one dark color are suggested).
Dry-erase boards will work well in place of paper, but make sure you have enough makers with plenty of ink.
If you have experience with and want to use a drawing tablet, you are welcome to, but know that it may be more difficult for you to share your work out with the group unless you have an easy way to screen share from your device. We won’t be speaking about how to draw with or use a tablet.
