Abstract : We present VizKit and a set of instructions on how to use VisKit to run a constructive visualization workshop. This constructive vi-sualization workshop was designed to introduce the basics behind authoring and interpreting visual representations of abstract data to lay audiences. The goal of VisKit is to provide both the material and procedure for conducting constructive visualization workshops that can engage lay audiences in a pleasant collective exercise. Here, we provide instructions as a manual, with illustrations of each step, to provide a potential workshop organizer with details about how to setup and run a constructive visualization workshop.
