Sketchnote Book Club: The Creative Act by Rick Rubin

By Verbal to Visual

Like to learn by doing? Then this series is for you! Throughout February we'll be reading the book The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin and sketchnoting the ideas that resonate. In each of the four 90-minute sessions we'll discuss a quarter of the book by sharing our visual notes with each other. Along the way I'll be giving you tips for how to tackle this unique challenge of sketchnoting a book so that you can remember and put into practice the key ideas.

What are the dates and times?
  • Session 1: Tuesday, February 6th
  • Session 2: Tuesday, February 13th
  • Session 3: Tuesday, February 20th
  • Session 4: Tuesday, February 27th
All sessions will run from 10:00am to 11:30am Pacific Time.

How do I sign up?

Click the "View tickets" button above. The book club costs $50, which includes access to all four 90-minute workshop sessions as well as the replays of those events.

What materials will I need?

The book! I encourage you read the first quarter of the book before the first session, and sketch out three of your favorite ideas.

Both analog and digital tools are welcome. I'll be using a pencil for underlining and marginalia, sticky notes and a gel pen for quick sketching of my favorite ideas, and a black marker on poster paper for presenting during the workshops.

What event platform is this?

It's called Crowdcast, and it's an online events platform that I've experienced (and thoroughly enjoyed) as an attendee, and I'm excited to host my live workshops here. It's kind of like Zoom, but much more polished. You won't be on camera by default, but I'll be inviting folks on throughout the session to share their work and ask questions.

If you don't already have a Crowdcast account, you'll need to create one in the registration process. The good news is there's no software to download! It runs seamlessly in your browser.

Will this workshop be recorded?

Yes, all workshop sessions will be recorded and the replays available immediately after the event.
