Sketch Aerobics™ 

Sketch Aerobics™—designed by Jose Gamboa, IDSA—is a fast, fun and dynamic approach to practice sketching!

Overcome the barriers of communication by using music and the basic elements of sketching to visually communicate your thoughts. Sketch Aerobics ™ fosters teamwork; learn by doing and work hard!

The fun aspect of Sketch Aerobics ™ eliminates the frustration that commonly used techniques provoke in young designers when learning how to draw. Begin with the very basic elements of drawing (lines and circles) and build to the more complex visual techniques. This workshop emphasizes the development of rapid visualization and the most effective ways to visually communicate your ideas as a flux for innovation.
