Drawing enables us to have a fast, direct and universal language that will expand our possibilities of sharing, analyzing and improving ideas. Through the learning and implementation of the bikablo® technique you will be able to develop a basic visual vocabulary to organize ideas graphically, develop concept maps and models.
It helps you forget the difficulties of drawing and concentrate on representing concepts and ideas and thanks to the effectiveness of its methodology you can use what you have learned immediately.
