Heather Martinez - Learn to Sketchnote

Click HERE to register for the workshop. John Neal Books is not hosting this workshop.

It's a great learning tool you can use when taking notes in class and workshops, journaling vacations, and telling a visual story.

Designed with the calligrapher or lettering artist in mind, in this live session, we will:
  • Experiment with a variety of materials used by professional and amateur sketchnoters.
  • Adopt a fast lettering style to use when rapid capturing and vary it up to fit your style and needs.
  • Practice hierarchy and page composition to help guide the reader's eye across the page.
  • Draw simple objects quickly to serve as mnemonic devices.

Have your favorite sketchbook and pens/small markers on hand. At the end of the class, you will gain access to online lettering resources to continue your practice and there will be a giveaway of sketchnoting supplies.
