The Idea Shapers Tour (Oct. 8th)
Brandy guides you through the five-steps process that helps you pull your ideas out of your head and onto paper. She introduces each of the 24 Idea Shapers from her book, stopping for hands-on exercises along the way. These activities will give you simple, powerful, new tools to use again and again.
Other visual thinking courses focus on visuals. Brandy’s idea-shaping tour focuses on thinking. She makes abstract, conceptual thinking and spatial organization concrete, accessible and even fun! By strengthening your thinking muscles, you have life-long skills to create clarity for yourself and others.
The workshop includes a copy of The Idea Shaper, 6 Neuland markers and your own sketchbook, along with all the materials you need for the day’s exercises.
Pyramid Power (Oct. 9th)
On the second day, Brandy leads you up The Pyramid. One of the Idea Shapers from her latest book, The Pyramid will transform your large-scale work. Shift from posters full of postage stamps to integrated compositions that lead the viewer on a clear path. Even drawing at smaller scales, knowing how to harness hierarchy and spatial organization will make you a stronger thinker and clearer communicator.
