Learn to Create Memorable, Shareable Notes

Sketchnote Academy: Basic Training Workshop

Aug 26th • 9am-12pm @ The Warren, Nashville, TN


You’re tired of pouring your time and money into learning… only to forget it all after a matter of days.

It’s a simple desire. If you spend your time and money on learning new things, you want to be able remember it. You want to keep those big ideas swirling around in your mind long after you first hear them, and you want to apply the lessons you learn. Furthermore, you don’t want to keep your newfound knowledge to yourself! You want to share this valuable information with others, too.


You want the power to remember content, capture big ideas, and share your notes with others.

Maybe your handwriting isn’t the greatest or your layout got confusing, so in an effort to create something others can (and want to) read, you digitized or typed up your notes… but you feel like something got lost when you translated from analog to digital. Your notes might be legible, but they still aren’t compelling.


Your current note-taking and sharing methods aren’t cutting it. 

Say Goodbye to forgotten stacks of notebooks!

Gain the power to remember content, capture big ideas, and share it with others through sketchnoting.

From novice to knowledgeable in 3 hours.

Sketchnote Academy: Basic Training is the introductory workshop you need to get started. In this 3-hour, small group learning environment, you’ll be introduced to sketchnoting through several stages:


  • Sketchnote Foundations: What, Why, and How
  • Sketchnote Tools: In and Outside the Book
  • Sketchnote Essentials: Listening, Writing, and Drawing
  • Sketchnote Framing: Layouts and Containers
  • Sketchnote Finishing: Refining and Sharing

Learn skills that help in other areas of life and work. 

As you grow in practice and confidence in your new “visual thinking” skills learned in this workshop, you’ll notice how these skills translate into other areas. You’ll be a great listener at work and at home. You’ll notice how you can more easily distinguish big ideas from “fluff.” You’ll be able to help others visualize and communicate their ideas. You might even find that YOU have big ideas you want to share!

This takes practice. It was humbling, but I didn't want to stop! The workshop went by so fast, I wanted part 2! Really enjoyed the workshop and meeting Emily.

It was awesome. I was able to learn so much and be stretched way outside of my comfort zone, but, this workshop gave me the nudge and courage to do that.
