The course helps attendees become fluent in the use of electronic sketching as an integral part of their design thinking, enabling sketch practice across interoperable platforms. Sketching techniques established in the short exercises can be applied to a limitless number of other visual communication scenarios. 

The course materials and teaching are sponsored by Concepts. All attendees will be issued a free Concepts Pro license for 8 weeks. A small charge per delegate is made for admin and refreshements.

Session 1 Introduction - Learn how to import imagery, work with layers, brushes, line weight, colour, duplicate and rotate tools.

Session 2 Google Earth - We will sketch over a derelict site in the London Docklands, remove the old roof, sketch a new one and assemble as an exploded diagram.

Session 3 Layouts - We will use key tools to produce a set of images in a construction sequence and explore the infinite canvas.

All three live sessions will be supported with pdf's of all slides and screen capture films for all who miss any sessions or want to re-visit.

We recommend you borrow (if you don't already possess) any of the following stylus devices to attend the course; iPad, Surface Pro, Dell Latitude 5330 (with pen and touch support).

Part of the fun of using the app is discovering what it can do. Away from work pressures among like-minded others we will progress on a gentle gradient with the focus on practice and exploration.

“I’ve had great feedback about the course and also seen in my team a real leap forward in the digital sketches my engineers who attended have been producing.” Susan Mantle Technical Director Heyne Tillett Steel
