It’s a great learning tool you can use when taking notes in class and workshops, journaling vacations, and telling a visual story.
Designed with the calligrapher or lettering artist in mind, in this workshop we will:
• Explore a variety of materials used by professional and amateur sketchnoters.
• Adopt a fast lettering style to use when rapid capturing and vary it up to fit your style and needs.
• Practice hierarchy and page composition to help guide the reader’s eye across the page.
• Draw simple objects quickly to serve as mnemonic devices.

Heather Leavitt Martinez learned how to sketch note before she sought training in calligraphy. She is a visual practitioner, art coach and lettering artist living in Durango, Colorado. After studying with master sign painters, graffiti artists, and calligraphers—which she continues to do today—Heather decided to translate what she learned to teach other visual practitioners the tradecraft of breaking down any lettering styles into the professional tools they use in their work. Heather believes that what we write on the wall is more than mere handwriting—letters are the building blocks of communication.
Heather’s graphic recording work has been featured in Letter Arts Review where she was named an Amanuensis to master calligrapher, Mike Gold. A peak-career experience that bridges the gap between art and being a visual practitioner.
Neuland Ambassador, Heather’s recent book, Lettering Journey was inspired by her North American cross-country trip. You can sign up for her free online course Unlock Your Neuland Markers at www.LetsLetterTogether.com
