Sketchnotes are a visual form of note-taking that can include drawings, various lettering sizes and styles, color, icons, arrows, boxes and more — whatever works for you. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a creative genius to do it. It’s called Sketchnoting, not Art School! 

This class has three sessions. Students may take just one session but are encouraged to take all three of the series as they build upon each other. Those with a visual arts background will still benefit as a certain looseness is needed for rapid sketching, which we will be covering in this class.
We will be listening to RadioLab WNYC as our source material for sketchnote practice.
