Visual Note-Taking 101


Visual Note-Taking 101

6 hours | Online | September 14-15th, 2020

Our full-day workshop is a visual note-taking bootcamp in six hours. We run the gamut of skills our artists have practiced and perfected to take your visual note-taking to the next level. You'll have enough time to practice with each topic, ask questions from industry pros, and try your hand at real-time visual note-taking.

This is a jumping-off point for implementing the visual language in your day to day life! New and more experienced visual practitioners are welcome.

This workshop will take place over two sessions:

  • Monday, September 14th, 9 am-12 pm CST
  • Tuesday, September 15th, 1 pm-4 pm CST

We’ll be recording both sessions of the workshop, so If you cannot attend the 2nd session, you can watch it at a later date.

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.
