Description

Graphic facilitation is a method of using visual language to help describe and illustrate the idea that you are conveying. We are all visual thinkers and we can all draw. You can also draw! You don't have to be an artist to put several shapes together. With just a little practice, you will be able to draw memorable icons that will help you lead groups and individuals towards the goal. Graphic facilitation is a powerful tool that can be used to quickly understand the content, push new information into long-term memory and most importantly, inspire people to act.


The course consists of four main sections:

  • In the introduction section, you are going to learn how to get the most out of this course, what materials we are going to use and how the rest of the course is going to be conducted.

  • In the second section you will learn how to draw by using 5 simple shapes only. You will learn all the necessary components to create a memorable poster. We are going to start with icons, then learn to incorporate shades and effects in your drawings. After that you will get familiar with drawing faces and facial expressions, platforms and signs to indicate the place, arrows to show the process and text and speech bubbles for bringing clarity. Finally you will learn about color theory, the meaning behind the colors and how to use them in the most correct way possible.

  • The third section is completely dedicated to using your skills in practice. Here you will learn about the three main phases of a training session and how to use graphic facilitation for making those phases more effective. We will discuss specific examples and give you the templates that can be used in your future work.

  • The last and the final section is about creating your own visual vocabulary. In this section you will learn how to create icons of your choice step by step. This will enable you to expand your visual library and work specifically within your context.


One of the most important features of this course is that we are more than happy to have you on-board and guide you through it.
