Brief Description

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso

Graphic recording at its core is visually capturing what is happening in a group or presentation. It is part of a large set of visual practices which use images as part of group processes, which includes graphic facilitation, collaborative graphics work, etc. (To learn more, see http://www.visualpractitioner.org/education/whatis1.htm) It can be used as a literal recording or it can be used as a visual element of a specific group and/or facilitation process.
