I teach researchers and teachers how to use drawings in their professional work.
Despite research demonstrating how effective drawing can be for learning and for assessment, a lot of people avoid incorporating this powerful visualization tool because they themselves don’t draw.
My approach is to provide a basic foundation in sketching skills, and then focus on how you can effectively utilize sketching in research and outreach or integrate sketching into their classrooms.
Humans think in images.
Our brains actually understand images faster, and remember images longer, than words. As a result, your image choices are fundamental to communicating the significance of your work.
I create customized illustrations and photographs that grab people’s attention, and I love and coaching you to develop your capacity to make compelling images.
My quarterly newsletter provides tips and inspiration for incorporating drawing into science, education, and daily life.
