Event description
Become a better visual thinker and communicator with Scriberia's foundation drawing course for non-artists

About this Event

In our challenging world, how effective are your standard ways of presenting, reporting and planning? How easy is it to share complex ideas and collaborate to solve problems? Do you need more lively ways to fire up people's energy, attention and imagination? Especially for colleagues and clients who are tired of reading reams of onscreen words?

Scriberia is a world-leading visual storyteller. Everything we do is drawing-based. We know just how effective a simple picture can be in cutting through confusion, uncertainty and disengagement. So we've created this 2-hour live and interactive workshop as our foundation course for non-artists. It’s designed to help you get started on using drawing to explain things more clearly, tell better stories and get to the point more quickly than you could with words alone.

How does this Scriberia Academy session work?

You’ll be coached in a group live on Zoom by one or more of our expert trainers. We’ll take you through a series of fun lessons and practical drawing exercises together to discover Scriberia’s essential methods for visualising anything. Our aim is to give you the core techniques and confidence to start using drawing as a powerful multipurpose means for thinking, creating and communicating.

At the end of the session we’ll send you a poster (PDF) summarising the ten key lessons so you can keep referring back to it as you develop your practice.

What special drawing tech do I need? (Just paper and pen)

It often feels safer to make pictures with digital tools. But they can distract from the task or muddy the message. So this workshop focuses on capturing clear and sharp ideas at speed just with paper and pen. That means you don’t need special kit to take part. We will, though, recommend drawing software for your own projects outside the session.

“Scriberia show even the most hopeless doodler how to capture and communicate ideas in their simplest form, with tricks and tips that make drawing a useful everyday work tool. And it’s all done with immense charm.” — Tom Firth, Managing Director, M&C Saatchi

I got back to my desk the next day and started to draw. Things I’d been trying to visualise came out so much better. Drawing things out helped my thinking and helped me evolve my own ideas. And, using drawing to pull ideas out of other people - getting them more comfortable with ideating visually - is great!” — Oz Maqsood, Global Head of Business Analysis, Springer Nature

“Scriberia did a fantastic and impressive job of navigating everyone through a series of hands-on exercises that raised the collective confidence in being able to visualise our ideas.”
Richard Beecroft, Associate Director, Mediacom
