**This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**

Join artist Susan Callan and other fellow artists who have traveled, kept journals en route, and didn’t leave the urge-to-art at home. Perhaps the art was an annotated menu, an adorned map, a hurried sketch of a stranger on a train, or a full-page of paint to capture a unique scene. Art stirs the traveler’s memory to re-live that moment, and the trip. Years later, it draws readers in, providing a time capsule  – in art and words.

A travel journal can start with either bought or handcrafted books; it can be slim and sparse of content or bursting with your experiences. They are all priceless treasures. 

Bring your favorite ‘artified’ travel journal to the Conversation. Bring questions, or tips you’ve picked up along the way. We’ll all be enriched by each other’s efforts. 

The challenge between the 1st & 2nd session? Just for an afternoon, be a tourist in your own neighborhood. Create one or two bits of art. Bring them to life with a few well-chosen words. Build on your past AND the Conversation’s first session. We’ll show & share results in the 2nd session...and, wish everyone a Bon Voyage d’ART on their next trip. 

These sessions promise to be lively - with comments, Q&As, creativity and laughter. Don't miss it!

The first session will be a presentation of recent work by the guest artist. The second session will be a group sharing of participants' work inspired by the presentation.

Around-the-house Materials and Supplies


  • Pen/pencil and notebook/paper... for notes.

Place the photo on your desktop... or however it is accessible when on Zoom. When you want to show it/them, Split or Share Screen, so that the viewers see a clear, steady image you can “talk to”.
