How to Doodle Teaching
If someone asked you to visualize the idea of TEACHING, what would you draw? Let’s draw a very simple classroom scene using basic icons to get this idea across in our visual notes. First, begin by drawing the whiteboard. Notice how straight lines were used for all sides of the whiteboard. Notice also how a gap was left on the left side of the whiteboard. We will fill this gap in a little later. You can also write A, B, C on the board, or anything else you like to demonstrate a lesson plan.
Let’s now draw a very simple person icon. This icon will become our teacher. Use an oval shape for the head and arc shapes for the body of our icon character.
Let’s now show that our teacher is going through something on our whiteboard. To do this, we will draw a very simple arm and a pointer. Use a combination of straight lines and an arc shape to draw the teacher’s arm and pointer.
It’s not really teaching unless we have an audience. Let’s draw our audience of pupils or students using simple icons. Again, use an oval shape for each head and arc shapes for the body. No need to add additional details. This pretty much gets the idea across that these icons are students.
Add the finishing touches to your doodle by giving it some color. Also, add three straight lines above the teachers and above one of the student’s heads to indicate that they are talking or engaged in a conversation. You will also notice that I filled in the gap on the whiteboard. So there we have it. This is our visual representation of TEACHING something. How many other ways can you think of to draw the idea of teaching something?
