A Sketchy Webinar: Developing Student Drawing Skills in a Digital Age 

Wednesday, March 6, 2024 
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

Join us as we explore drawing in the 21st-century classroom. From analog to digital arts, see examples and hear from educators who teach drawing to advance artmaking and communications skills to help students capture real and imagined worlds. As part of this discussion, we’ll also dive into how the methods and mindsets of sketchnoting can help learners of all ages build confidence with new and effective ways to absorb and manage information.
