The Art of Doodling

Left right brain 2.jpg

The majority of scientific and education researchers agree that about 75 percent of our learning takes place through our vision, and that sixty five percent of people learn better visually. Visual input is more likely to be recognized and recalled and visual note –taking (doodling) helps us make connections between ideas more easily; it activates our creativity and aids in our concentration. Add color and people are 80% more likely to read what you have written! Yet most of us have been taught from an early age to take linear notes on lined paper.

This workshop encourages people to unleash their inner doodler and in the process, learn the fundamentals of visual note-taking, also known as mind-mapping. Come and practice the art of doodling as an alternative (and often more effective) method for note taking during classes, lectures, meetings and other work or study situations.

Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages, including high school seniors and college students.

Materials: Paper, crayons, pencils & markers provided, although you are welcome to bring your own sketch book.

Instructor: Lesley Diaz

Lesley is the owner and principal consultant of Collaborance, a consulting firm devoted to
collaboration as a creative process. She is also passionate about words and color and the role of art in learning, leadership, decision-making and change.
