The Art of Travel: Section A

Painting a view, sketching a building, or creatively rendering an object seen in a museum are just a few ways to record our travel experiences. From city plans to road maps, from postcards to sketches, this multi-media course will explore the artful documentation of travel, and the creation of work inspired by it.

Using a variety of media and techniques, participants will explore new ways to record travel observations and express the feelings that travel can evoke. Exercises will be journal-based, and techniques may include drawing, painting, collage, map-making, and printmaking.

Whether taking a day trip to the beach or a vacation to a foreign country, this course will jumpstart your creativity and suggest paths for recording the world around you in a personal and meaningful way. All skill levels are welcome.
