TRAVEL JOURNALING IN ITALY
September 16 - 23, 2017
Come back to Cortona with me!
What better place to join the visual journaling craze than beautiful Cortona, Italy? Let me guide you through the techniques of quick drawing, collaging and watercolor painting as we record the sights around us. I will show you how to look for telling details and edit larger views, combining travel tickets, postcards, maps and photos for finished journal pages.
With Cortona as our homebase, and a local expert as our guide, we will explore Tuscan hill towns, experience an authentic Italian cooking class, and savor exceptional meals and nightly wine tastings, filling our journals with creativity as we go.
