The BEING VISUAL BASICS workshop aims to enable people to take their first steps in visual communication. The program is filled with frameworks and insights, which are then followed by supervised exercises. You will learn both about composition and the structures of drawing and apply these to drawing people, objects, storyboards, and icons. To this we add a bit of theory and lots of supervised practice.
