Space Out: Sketch Your Ride for the Next Century

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

3:30pm to 6:00pm (CST)

RSVP Required - Extraterrestrial travel is within our (civilian) grasp and it's time for designers, dreamers, and wannabe astronauts to come together to imagine the future. Using pen and paper, we'll sketch our ultimate personal spaceship while honing our ability to quickly illustrate ideas as physical objects and interfaces. Whether your approach borders on the rational or the fantastic, you'll push your creativity and problem-solving skills while learning a valuable process and having fun. Sketching is a great way to quickly express ideas, iterate and share with others. Absolutely no drawing experience required!


What to Bring:
Instructor will provide pencils, erasers, and paper. Participants are welcome to bring their own.
