There's something special and rewarding about recording our travel experiences in words and illustrations. When we take the time to really see and express what we see, those experiences are enhanced and forever etched into our memories. You have probably seen some beautiful journals created by skilled artists; those are amazing but that's not what we will be striving for in this workshop. When I travel, I am busy having FUN! I don't want to spend 3 hours on a page in my journal but I do want to record what I am seeing and feeling while in a specific location. We will attempt to complete a page in 15 minutes or less. We will play with watercolor, colored pencils, markers, various papers, gouache, photos, brochures, travel memorabilia, and found objects. We will practice with some simple drawing exercises to build your confidence and a brief lesson in watercolor to help you add some color to your journals. It is really all about playing and preserving your memories of your travels. IMPORTANT: Bring your travel photos, memorabilia, ticket stubs, brochures, articles, maps, etc.

(or if you would rather, you can bring in sheets of watercolor torn or cut to a manageable size and make your own book when you get home.)

  • Inexpensive paintbrushes, one small, one larger
  • Colored pencils
  • Markers, a set with at least 8 colors
  • Fine tip black marker
  • Ruler or straight edge
  • Glue – stick, Elmers, etc
