Why enrol in a visual learning school for imagination, critical and creative thinking?

Write your awesome label here.
Because if you picture it, you'll understand it, and visual thinking simplifies the formation of ideas, making communication more effective. It aids comprehension, helps us retain information and facilitates rapid identification with concepts.

Rapid identification with concepts and picture thinking powers imagination.

Visual, spatial, symbolic thinking strategies
Aboriginal Australians have exemplary lateral thinking skills. Their learning frameworks are also powerful for abstract thinking. Both abstract and lateral thinking underpin creativity and imagination, two important 21st century skills.
Sharing knowledge is key for cross-cultural learning.
By fusing Western learning methods
with Aboriginal pedagogical frameworks that communicate information visually, symbolically, metaphorically & imaginatively we all develop creatively.

Develop your visualisation skills with us. External visualisation is communicating your ideas pictorially while internal visualisation is imagining.

When we draw our ideas and think in pictures, we generate ideas that are non-sequential, place-based and connected in multiple ways. This is critical for the imagination.
Learning should be easy.
We talk in pictures so you can too. 

You can use digital tools (tablet + pen) or analogue tools (visual diaries and pencils) in our programs.

Our courses are the "sit back and watch" type pedagogy. This allows you to see the pictures, watch the instruction, and draw your thinking. Visual learning makes it possible to retain information effortlessly and develop new skills at your own pace. 

Take your time, vision is our dominant sense & effortless. Thinking in pictures and learning to see aids comprehension. Symbols, metaphors and visual rhetoric build creative thinking.

What do our students think about the learning?

One of our teams recently completed a tremendous Creativity/Visualisation workshop and the feeling was that everyone who needs to think and communicate needs these skills”.

The first session has left me so excited not only for the next session, but just to see day-to-day thought in a different way!  Everyone needs to learn this! highly recommended!
Hayley Stanbury - NSW Teacher
The most useful aspects of this course was making the link between mindfulness and imagination/creativity and the ways in which we can ‘turn’ on different brainwaves to assist with making new connections and neural pathways to assist with creativity and learning.
