Sketch Workshop: grow your communication skills - visibly!

  • Fab@CIC 121 Devonshire Street Boston, MA, 02109 United States (map)

Hosted by Fab@CIC and DockYard

To make ideas happen, you must communicate with many stakeholders. Sketching alone or together is a great way to rapidly generate and give shape to your ideas. 

Sketching is deceptively simple. It requires nothing more than a Sharpie and some paper. And yet, unless you’re a trained artist or chronic doodler, it can seem daunting. This workshop will teach you techniques that will enable you to visually represent your ideas so you can share them with others—and make them a reality!

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop will benefit anyone who needs to generate ideas, build consensus, and communicate outcomes. This workshop is great for designers, engineers, product developers, and anyone who wants to communicate more effectively.
