Professional Workshops


Stanford University Residence Staff Workshop, April 2018

Cara Bean leads a workshop encourages participants to apply drawing techniques to their specific expertise. No art experience is necessary.  We learn accessible sketching techniques that stimulate free thinking and spark inspiration. Through slideshows and comics readings, participants will be exposed to the work of artists who use simple drawing to interpret complex information. This workshop is an opportunity to explore how to interpret visual information in textbooks, journal articles, slide presentations, websites, and classroom whiteboards, but also to create drawings. Drawing is a powerful tool for thinking and communicating, regardless of the discipline. Experience how drawing can be a processing skill and a gateway to creating insightful graphic metaphors.
