Travel Journal Workshop
September 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$45
There’s no better way to remember a special trip than to keep a journal about it. BUT, it can be tough to do that on a trip with family and friends who want to go, do, and be entertained.
This workshop will take away the intimidating aspects of keeping a travel journal. We will learn techniques to break in a new journal before a trip and tips for working in it quickly so that it doesn’t take over the entire vacation.
Our goal is to capture the essence of a trip and preserve the memories.
The goal here is NOT to make perfect sketches. Let me repeat: the goal is NOT to create perfect drawings.
Come with a trip in mind, past or future, or treat the workshop as your big adventure and document it!
We’ll start at Uncommon Art in Hudson and do several warm up exercises in our journals. Then, we will venture out into the great wide world and create some memories!
- Journal or sketchbook (medium size, 8.5 x 5.5 or so). Bring one you have on hand if you have it instead of buying something new.
- Writing pen
- Glue stick
- Small scissors
- A few photos or memorabilia (maps, ticket stubs, brochures) from a previous vacation, or info for an upcoming trip. Plan to use xerox copies of these items if they are precious to you!
- Watercolor kit (optional, but here’s one I like: https://www.amazon.com/Winsor-Newton-Cotman-Colour-Sketchers/dp/B00004THXI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502657711&sr=8-1&keywords=cotman+pocket+box)
- Folding chair or stool
