FUNdamentals of Calligraphy: Romans and Italic

Learn the fundamentals of calligraphy and how to use your lettering more effectively in sketch notes and graphic recording. Specifically, participants will learn the logic, proportions and spacing of majestic Roman Capitals and their lowercase counterparts.

Students will be shown how to create the letterforms with monoline, brush and broad edge tools. They will also learn how to modify the forms for a more contemporary look; and they will learn to create contemporary decorated letters to use to add "gravitas" to graphic recordings.

In addition to the Roman forms, students will learn the fundamentals of an informal Italic lettering. Here, we will explore rhythm and pattern as it relates to the lettering, and also the optimal way to use this script in sketch notes and graphic recordings. For both lettering styles, hands on exercises will be emphasized, as well as many demonstrations by me, the teacher. The goal will be to create a small "custom map" on any topic using the letterforms learned.

Students will receive a special booklet with exemplars and practice approach tips and samples that illustrate how I use these letter forms in sketch notes and graphic recordings.

Opening the Map – Beginning Our Treasure Hunting Journey Together

Welcome intrepid explorers!  Are you as excited as we are to hunt for hidden treasure?  As any good explorer knows, opening the map and finding out where X marks the spot is only the beginning to a much richer journey.  But before we set out, who else is in the team?  Who can offer us inspiration, expertise, experience and advice, now and in the future?  Be there and find out!

We open the conference with a session designed to create community and connection.  This will be no ordinary reception, but a way of meeting and getting to know your colleagues that will set you – and us! – up for a deeper experience of learning and sharing.  We’ll start with a welcome from our Conference team, and an overview of the conference, but it won’t stop there.  Mary Alice will guide us on an interactive journey of finding who’s in the room, why we said yes to this invitation and how our unique perspectives blend to give us a view on the facets of our professional field.  We top off the evening with a powerful call to practice and an opportunity to set your intention for success during the conference.

Our evening session runs from 7:00 – 11:00 pm.  You’ll want to be there for the whole session!

Facilitating Virtual Collaboration

What it is: This hands-on session explores a framework for designing and facilitating virtual collaborative work and introduces seven best practices. You’ll have a chance to facilitate one of the practices yourself while experiencing them all in a simulated virtual meeting right there in the room. You’ll see how a facilitator sets up tools for the group while also seeing what those tools look like from the group’s point of view. We will wrap up the session with a game designed to help you feel more prepared for the challenges that arise spontaneously during virtual work! You are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet if you can.

What it isn’t: This is not a virtual graphic recording workshop. In fact, none of the approaches require graphic recording at all, although they all include visual support. The session is not about designing or running an individual virtual meeting. It also will not cover how to use any particular tools in depth.

What you’ll leave with: You will receive a copy of the framework for your reference as well as step-by-step instructions for each of the seven best practices we use. You will also receive the benefit of an extended conversation in your small group about the challenges, risks, and success factors of virtual facilitation. Hopefully, you will also leave with more confidence and less fear about working virtually!

From Canvas to Camera: How to Make Your Own Sketch Video

Whiteboard animation, sketch video, videoscribe: whatever you call it, there’s no denying that this style of video is effective at making complex, dry information more engaging. And you’ve probably been asked at some point: “Can you make them?”

It may seem like a different skillset, but they don’t care—it's all just sketching, right?

In this session, I'll reveal the process that we use to make sketch videos—from initial concept to finished product. I'll share the steps, tools, and tips for creating a professional sketch video—and show you how you can do the same without breaking the budget.

Session will include a 30 minute break.

The Idea Shapers

Brandy Agerbeck follows up her 2012 book The Graphic Facilitator's Guide with a book that defines and develops the thinking side of "visual thinking," The Idea Shapers: The power of putting your thinking into your own hands. In this virtual session, Brandy shares the book's five-step process, organizing a set of 24 visual thinking concepts that gives us a comprehensive way to improve, talk about and teach our work. She'll highlight the Top 5 Idea Shapers every visual practitioner must master. 

On The Idea Shapers, Nancy Duarte, best-selling author and CEO of Duarte Inc, says, "It’s rare to find a book rich in systems that’s clear and applicable right away." Dave Gray, founder of Xplane and author of Liminal Thinking says,  "Once again Brandy Agerbeck provides simple, clear and highly practical guidance for anyone who aspires to excel in visual thinking and facilitation. Brandy is a master practitioner and a natural born teacher. You can't do better than this book."

1:30 pm to 3:00 pm Sharon Zeugin & Renatta Algalarrondo
Illuminate Your Style

This is the session where fine art meets lettering and graphic recording! There was a time in history where all books were hand-written original works of art. Let’s be inspired by those illuminated manuscripts and explore practical possibilities to use lettering as pattern and texture, putting them together in a chart. Let’s practice together and illuminate your style! Learn more about Sharon and Renatta.

3:30 pm to 5:00 pm Sam Bradd
Listening for Diversity

What techniques do you use to Listen for Diversity? Let's find out what's possible when we honour diversity as part of our visual practice! Diversity comes in infinite forms -- race, gender, cultures, age, and abilities to just name a few. Many of us are working in specialized fields and it's not one size fits all. It's an exciting time as visual practice expands for us to share wisdom about "Listening for Diversity" techniques that work for practitioners, clients, and communities. Sam will share the results of new feedback from the field, and the workshop format will be a casual fishbowl conversation, plus a new model for reflection. Some questions to get us started: If we're working in an unfamiliar context, what resources can we turn to? What can we draw? Picture an iceberg - what we draw is only what's on the surface. What else can we do to support diversity? Join us! Take Sam's survey on Listening with Diversity. Hurry! Survey closes on May 8th.

Fantastic Visuals and Where to Find Them

There is a wealth of metaphor lurking in everyday language that can provide a rich resource for visuals. We will listen for metaphor, simile, hyperbole, idiom, anthropomorphism, and other figures of speech in daily use and practice turning these into visuals that are unique, interesting and intelligent, and that actually enhance content. Come away with a new source of visuals, and some new ideas you can start to use right away.

Visual Problem-Solving: 5 Diagrams in 15 Minutes

Visual Thinking for Problem-Solving can be done with the simplest of visual tools: diagrams. This online workshop demonstrates a framework of five diagrams that can take you from brainstorming to planning a course of action. These diagrams work for group facilitation or one-to-one coaching, from strategy sessions to personal development planning. Facilitators who worry about their graphic skills can use the power of diagramming to create strong visual models that supports their work, while graphic recorders who want to organize fast flows of content can help tame the stream with one or more of these visual tools.

Deepening Resiliency with Jill Greenbaum

Deepening Resiliency: Taking Great Care of Ourselves to Do Our Best Work As visual practitioners, we know that being resilient is critical to our success with clients—in meetings, when facilitating, recording and in post production. Yet, life moves quickly and we don’t often hit the pause button—we just don’t make the time to engage in self-care. In this session, participants will reflect on their best work, identify some challenges they have faced in being prepared—mentally, physically and emotionally—to do stellar work, brainstorm solutions and be introduced to a variety of easy to implement self-care practices. We'll make time to experience a few techniques and folks will leave with a plan for their own self-care.
