Visual Fitness 4 All® 

What is it? Why is it important? 

Visual Fitness—the ability to decode and encode visual meaning— is a vital survival strategy in our 21st century digital world where pocket devices persistently bombard us with graphic information. Renee Sandell, artist and educator, helps learners of all ages decipher images and ideas to understand our increasingly visual culture. Her unique Visual Fitness training nurtures meaningful eye contact (not ‘iContact’) by engaging focus, accessing creativity, and building community.
