Whether your travels are coming right up, are far in the future or the past, or still in your dreams, come enjoy visual journaling to document your trip. Explore samples of sketchbooks and travel art kits. Learn techniques for keeping a visual travel journal on-the-go. Enhance journal pages with lettering, borders and layouts. Practice sketching with watercolors. Come have fun in a supportive group setting and begin, or add to, your travel journal.
