Join me as I guide your young artist through the steps of creating their very own travel journal! Imagine how much fun your child will have recorded all of their own memories in a travel journal they made themselves!  

This is an excellent way to engage kids in doing something that is fun, great for their mental health, strengthens their communication skills, and relaxing. Not to mention screen-free!

This travel journal can be their own personal souvenir from a summer of adventures that they will be sure to treasure for a lifetime!

Creative Travel Journal ages 14+

Jun 18, 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM

CURIO Cool,  Zelienople, PA 

Join me as I guide you through the steps of creating your very own travel journal! Finishing a travel journal while traveling is a difficult thing to do.  Mostly because of time – or, better said, the lack of it.

We take trips to relax and have adventures, and there is often more adventure time than relaxing time when you could play in your travel journal. You don’t know how or where to begin, have the best intentions and time slips away. Day after day this happens and you get discouraged. Returning home with a few notes, doodles, and a whole lot of memories, brochures, ticket stubs, and receipts. and a phone full of photos.

All of these pieces could help you finish your journal at home – if you could only put the pieces together. But what if we got started BEFORE an adventure or trip?

You can create a simple but memorable journal to capture all your memories now – before your summer travels begin! This journal can be perfect for those stay-vacation days to large adventurous trips. Let your creativity flow!

All materials are included in the class fee. $35.

Susan Walker creates bright, bold, encouraging mixed media acrylic paintings. Custom paintings and pet portraits. Conducts,drawing, Twisted line,travel sketching for mixed media paint & sip classes for adults and children as well as many others at her location or yours.She works in her home studio while sharing it with family and fellow creatures: Lucy the beagle, Pickles the once independent city slicker, 6 koi, 3 uninvited but welcomed frogs in their pond. Here you can follow along in her life as an artist & business owner in her daily life as a mother,wife. Mixed media is her medium of choose,building up layers of paint, texture, stamping and just about anything else lending to the topic. She enjoys the whispers of encouraging words in her art. Inspiring words can be the focus or whispers among the images she draws and paints. She feels the world around us is filled with criticism and pressure where our own thoughts and being gets forgotten. Sometimes she states encouragement and inspiration boldly as the focus of the piece or just under the surface and among the layers for the discerning eye to discover. Susan continues to work with pen/ink and watercolor using them in her art and in her almost daily sketchbook journals. Can see more of my work : FAN PAGE:
