SDN Academy Events - Switzerland

You don’t need to be an artist to master the basics of a visual thinking. It’s drawing, not rocket science.

What to expect?

The motor skills you use to write a shopping list or sign a birthday card are no different from those that you need to draw a picture.

We’ll start the session with some simple warm-up exercises, learning about the importance of visual thinking, building your own visual vocabulary, and continue to gradually extent the level of detail and complexity in your drawings.
