Attendees do not need to have previous knowledge about sketching since I go over the basics of sketching and the exercises are for beginners and those looking to get back into sketching.
The audience is going to experience the power of sketching firsthand through specific exercises. Participants will be sketching under various constraints such as time and space on a page, and shapes. They will also learn about the importance of using sketching to ideate, iterate, and communicate their ideas. I will share my own sketching journey as I went from not sketching and struggling as a designer to becoming an advocate for sketching and saving my career. Participants will be inspired to incorporate sketching into their workflow and processes right away so they can gain the full benefits of sketching and become amazing and boost their careers.
