Graphic Change Academy

Working visually is powerful. It's engaging. It's memorable. It's inclusive. We believe everyone can learn to work visually. Including you.

At Graphic Change we've spent over a decade helping organizations globally to create positive change by communicating visually, with hand drawn big pictures, illustrations and whiteboard animations .

We set up Graphic Change Academy to help more people learn simple, powerful visual skills to improve their communication. 

 

We run engaging and high quality courses and workshops in person to get you drawing and thinking visually for your work. You can contact us here if you have any visual working training requests for your own organisation.

We run online courses so you can learn in your own time, at your own pace to fit around your schedule, anywhere in the world (with a basic level of English). 

 

This is no ordinary online training: Clear, simple tutorials take you through everything you need to know across a range of visual practices. You get access to our online community and individual feedback from a practitioner so you can get the most out of each course. We think it's the best of all learning combinations. See below for our current range of online courses.

Much more than how to roll out a big piece of paper and draw icons. I liked how the class unfolded over time with a mix of fun drawing projects, practice doing graphic recording, and lots of encouragement to self-reflect.
