Course Description
Overcome the barriers of communication by using music and the basic elements of sketching to visually communicate your thoughts. The Sketch Aerobics ™ was born as a methodology to teach students the basic elements on visual communication and it has been transformed into an innovation tool to foster team work. The key to be successful at Sketch Aerobics ™ is to learn by doing and work hard. The fun aspect of the Sketch Aerobics ™ eliminates the frustration that commonly used techniques provoke in young designers when learning how to draw.  The learning process begins with the very basic elements of drawing (lines and circles) and building up to the more complex visual techniques. This class emphasizes the development of rapid visualization and the most effective ways to visually communicate your ideas as a flux for innovation.

The goal of this course is to develop the necessary skills to visually communicate your thoughts. We will be learning by doing.
