About this FieldTrip

This is a special edition VIRTUAL FieldTrip—open to everyone!


We all take notes. But how much do you truly remember? And how often do you look back and proudly share what you’ve recorded?

Prepare to go on an interactive journey with professional artists/facilitators, Adam Rosendahl ( and Forest Stearns (, as you learn the power of visual thinking, and how to use color, drawing, and fonts to bring your notes to life.

Participants will:
- Practice drawing and lettering techniques
- Explore illuminated note-taking practices
- Develop your unique aesthetic and style

Come prepared with:
- Your favorite notebook (personal/business/or otherwise)
- Your favorite pens/art materials.
- An open mind (no experience required)

This is a special VIRTUAL FieldTrip presented in partnership with Adobe.

Generally, FieldTrips are designed and organized by amazing individuals and organizations from within our community. They are offered in the same spirit of generosity that has powered CreativeMornings events for the past decade.

Most FieldTrips are intimate (in-person) gatherings limited to 25 people. This event is a unique experiment in “VIRTUAL FieldTrips” with the hope that more people will be able to join LIVE.
