About This Class
Dive into functional drawing! Join information designer and artist Catherine Madden for a 60-minute class demystifying how drawing can help you communicate ideas clearer, faster, and stronger.
As she draws everyday data into friendly stories and charts, you'll learn how a few simple moves can help you organize your ideas, extend your brainstorming, and communicate complex concepts simply (and effectively) to audiences of every size.
This class is ideal for for:
- a designer, writer, or artist eager to share stories in a visual way
- a creative team looking to communicate and collaborate faster
- an entrepreneur honing a persuasive pitch
Use this class to learn functional drawing techniques and unlock the power of visual thinking!

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.

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.
