265 Maitland St
265 Maitland St, London, ON N6B 2Y3, Canada
Facilitated by Emma Richard, illustrator, graphic recorder, and creative facilitator.
Visuals can be a powerful tool for capturing stories, making meaning, and communicating with one another. The good news is, you don’t have to be a great artist to be a great visual storyteller.
If you have attended Winter Rethink over the past several years, you will already have witnessed Emma's unique ability to listen with intention and turn what she hears into a captivating graphic artifact.
In this session, Emma will lead us in: Developing a visual vocabulary Learning sketch-noting basics and building blocksThe process of witnessing and integrating what is seen, heard, felt Working with our inner critic Choosing the right materials Navigating a big blank page Integrating visual storytelling into your work
Together, we will consider how these skills may lend themselves to our professional practice and the ways we reflect on and document children's learning.
This opportunity will involve sharing stories, learning from one another, and practicing new skills in a playful environment.
