Picture THIS.

FACT: People remember more from images than from text. Do you ever wish you could express an idea by drawing it?



Visual thinking is the key to creating concepts that play out in pictures.



And I've noticed that quite a few people could benefit from it so I developed a workshop to inspire people to see "stories" as "pictures".



I'll also be sharing a few of the little tricks I use to convey my stories and concepts using some of the most straightforward and easily accessible digital tools.



Maybe you have a story, article or PowerPoint presentation that you want to illustrate; or you'd like to promote or teach something with images or video. Whether you draw it yourself or hire someone else to do it, having a clear idea of what you want is invaluable.



My workshop will give you skills to distill your concepts to their most basic forms: lines and dots.



I'm keeping it uncomplicated - there's no hi-tech blathering.


Also it will be funny.




And sweet.



If you're interested in bringing The Art of Visual Storytelling to your event, contact me. I am nice.

If you're in Montreal, you're in luck. The Art Of Visual Storytelling is being hosted by ELAN English Language Arts Network, Tuesday, MARCH 12. It's right downtown in a great space - the Visual Voice Gallery, BELGO building, 7-9PM. Fee for ELAN members is $10 ($15 for non ELAN members or $5 for full-time students). Perfectly do-able prices, amiright?
