Throughout the class, Catherine uses Paper and Pencil by FiftyThree, but you're welcome to bring any tool or approach!
FiftyThree builds mobile creation tools that help users to sketch, write, draw, outline, and color on the iPad. Curious for more? Check out Digital Drawing Workout: The Art of Subtraction with Shantell Martin, also presented in collaboration with FiftyThree.

Great idea on how simple it is to just get started and to get ideas out of your head.
Relly interesting and practical class! I never thought that I would be able to represent all kind of information visually.
We live to learn.
I'm a designer, doodler, and digital artist. I spent the past several years consulting for big companies, helping them think through how to visualize data and information in meaningful ways. Now I'm on a mission to get everybody to think visually and untap their creative talents.
