WHO THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR:

This Home Study Kit is specifically designed for Visual Process Professionals — people who help groups and/or individuals think, feel and process in corporate, governmental, not-for-profit and other settings. Consultants, Facilitators, Trainers, Managers, Supervisors, Coaches, Counselors, Therapists, Graphic Recorders and the like.

You most likely have invested in some beginner or even advanced training in the niche skills of Graphic Recording and/or Graphic Facilitation (with Christina Merkley or other instructors in the field). And would like to broaden your ability and confidence in live, spontaneous sketching, drawing and caricature.

Other people who benefit from this course are artists, illustrators, graphic designers, urban sketchers and other creatives who want to loosen their style and drop perfectionism and design rules. Particularly if you are curious or contemplating trying to transfer your existing skills into the live and speedy Graphic Recording and/or Graphic Facilitation profession.
