Travel journaling is a fun, unique and deeply personal form of creatively chronicling your travels, usually in a book or diary format. A travel diary can engage and give readers a deeper understanding of your mindset during a travel experience that looking at photos alone just can't accomplish. In this course I will help you with gathering your art supplies (along with some suggestions on supplies that you should leave at home), coming up with interesting travelogue ideas, finding time to record your thoughts and ideas while on the go and how to utilize a combination of photography, writing and drawing (and more!) to personalize your travels and help you remember them forever. If you have a special trip coming up or even just want to commemorate a previous trip that was meaningful to you, this class is perfect for you!
