I was fortunate enough, earlier this week, to attend the closing colloquium for the Teachers Institute I staffed this year. We combined with a second Institute – the Teachers Institute for the Arts, staffed by the fabulous Elyssa Moss Rabinowitz and David Moss of Kol Haot.
During the colloquium, Tim and Jenny from Creative Connections live sketched the event. They live sketched the opening workshop for the Teachers Institute for the Arts last summer, so the participants in that program were familiar with their work.
This just blew me away! This is very similar to sketchnoting, although it’s more a reporting than a processing of the information. I love it, though!
A few tips from Tim:
- Most text goes into containers
- Containers can “layer,” that is, appear to be under or over one another
- Use color
- Don’t use visual clichés
Watching Tim and Jenny work during the colloquium was fascinating, and made me want to pursue sketchnoting even more.
And speaking of pursuing sketchnoting more…
Sketchnote Army is a great resource if you’re looking to learn more about sketchnoting as is their new podcast. I listened to episode one on my commutes yesterday and today (I have a short drive!), and the info was just great!
