About The Workshop

After releasing The Sketchnote Handbook, and The Sketchnote Workbook, Mike began sharing the core ideas and principles from his books at talks and conferences around the world. The response encouraged him to create a hands-on workshop designed for a small group of students.

"After this workshop, I want to spend more time with my sketchbook. I plan to take my book to a seminar and try my hand at a live event."
— Sheila Flener

With help from his educational designer advisor, Amber Pierce, He's built a learner-focused sketchnoting curriculum for beginning students that helps you apply sketchnoting in your own life the same day.

The Sketchnote Workshop teaches you to think in a new way, while having a fun, encouraging time learning principles and techniques.

About Mike Rohde

Mike Rohde is the author of The Sketchnote Handbook (2012), and The Sketchnote Workbook (2014). He enjoys teaching sketchnoting principles to students—especially those new to drawing and non-artists.

His lifelong habit of recording concepts and observations through sketching, inspired him to develop sketchnotes—a practical art that translates simple and complex ideas into easily recalled bits of information.

Community and sharing are important cornerstones of Mike's philosophy, as evidenced by the creation of The Sketchnote Army, a website dedicated to finding and showcasing sketchnotes and sketchnoters from around the world.
