GRAPHIC RECORDING TRAINING
October 5, 2013
About the Workshop:
Recognizing that the majority of people are visual learners, New York Peace Institute is excited to host a 1-day graphic recording training with Visuals for Change founder, Amanda Lyons. This workshop will enable participants to learn and practice the tool of graphic recording. If your work involves facilitating meetings, translating ideas into action plans, and helping people communicate more effectively, graphic recording is a unique and creative skill that will set you apart from others in your field. This hands-on program will help you understand how to use visuals to enhance communication and will help you define your style and refine your technique. This program is aimed at beginners and intermediates and no drawing skills are necessary.
