Lines to Things

Connecting the Dots


“For anyone wondering how my “scribe” writing is so tidy, know that the process is a slow one: from listening, to gathering data, to sitting with what is most relevant, to writing on a wall. It starts out as a mess!”

This activity is a special challenge to complete the first section. We hope you have built up a small library of lines shapes arrows and containers, all of which can be used as part of a sketchnote activity.
Materials: Sketchbook
