The Doodle Institute with Diane Bleck

The Doodle Institute is committed to building Courses, Community and Careers for Visual Thinkers like YOU!

The Doodle Institute is one of the only learning environments that encourages our students to doodle. We want our students to understand the power of visual learning. We believe when you put pen to paper, you open your heart channel to ideas, insights and inspirations.

Have you ever seen people take awesome sketch notes in their journal, on their iPad or at a flipchart? Do you want to learn how you can draw large scale doodles for organizations large and small? Do you want to make infographics to explain complex ideas? Or are you interested in bringing more creativity and innovation to your current job? Or maybe you have seen one of those popular hand drawn videos and thought, "I can do that!" Well, YOU CAN!

Unlock the MAGIC of your Markers!

From infancy to industry, doodling has practical and powerful applications. Mathematicians and scientists use doodles to explain complex theories and equations. Business people use doodles to map business plans and strategies. Across the globe, people from all walks of life are doodling to help them communicate – to give visual representation and meaning to their ideas and to help others. Doodles help people innovate.

I know, you are going to say, “But I am not an artist.”

These courses were created with you in mind. We believe visual thinking is not about ART but IDEAS. This is a skill that anyone can learn and apply to all industries and careers. We all use whiteboards, why not learn how to make your ideas come to life!


And the world needs YOU to bring those talents to all kinds of careers. Taking visual notes is a skill that can be trained and used in any line of work. Are you a teacher, coach, therapist, trainer, homeschooler or facilitator?
