Basics of sketchnoting workshop

Sign up to learn how to sketchnote with Tanmay Vora.

Online via Zoom

As part of our Community Space workshop series, we’re offering some sessions for Q members to help you learn how to sketchnote!

This first session on Friday 13 August covered the basics of sketchnoting, run by Tanmay Vora.

This will be followed by a workshop on Friday 10 September to help you put your learning into practice.

You will learn:

  • The fundamentals of sketchnoting
  • How to express ideas and concepts in form of simple visuals
  • How to sketch basic objects, people, hands, facial expressions
  • How to develop visual metaphors of abstract concepts and ideas
  • Understand visual structure for impactful visual communication
  • Applying visual thinking into your day-to -day work (contextual application)

To join the sessions you’ll need:

  • a notepad/sketchpad with blank pages
  • Felt Tip pens of different sizes (for example: 0.4, 0.5, 1.0, Signature pens, highlighters, Brush pens)

You’ll be encouraged to share your creations on twitter if you’re comfortable, using #QCommunitySpace.

The sketchnoting sessions will also enable you to connect with other members, share stories and process your experiences visually using sketchnoting tools.

Each week Tanmay will share a challenge on twitter for practice between the two workshops.
Look out for the challenges appearing on #QCommunitySpace:

  • Friday 20 August
