Course Description
Art Journaling with Veronica Funk
  • Embarking on a journey, whether near or far, opens the door to a world of experiences waiting to be captured and remembered. One way to preserve these moments and turn them into cherished artifacts is through the art of travel journaling.
  • For me, keeping a travel journal has become a deeply fulfilling hobby, a passport to reliving my adventures and emotions long after the journey ends. It’s a way to encapsulate the essence of a place and time, and through this workshop, I’m excited to share my travel journaling techniques and practices with you.
  • In this workshop, we’ll dive into the world of travel journaling together. I’ll introduce you to my personal sketchbooks, offering insights into how I work while traveling and how I transform my experiences into captivating visuals. We’ll explore a variety of watermedia techniques, and I’ll demonstrate how to create beautiful entries with minimal watercolor supplies, making it easy to carry your artistic passion with you on your journeys.
  • Our journey together will include starting a new journal, utilizing water media that are not only effective but also convenient to take along on your adventures. This workshop will be an informal and relaxed space where you can freely express your creativity, ask questions, and learn from fellow travelers.
  • Whether you aim to document your past travels or seek inspiration for future ones, this workshop promises to be a rewarding experience. It will ignite your imagination and transform how you document your journeys, allowing you to capture the essence of your adventures in a way that words alone simply cannot. Join us on this artistic voyage into the world of travel journaling, where every page becomes a portal to your fondest memories.

Instructor Bio
Veronica Funk grew up in the most beautiful place in northern Manitoba, surrounded by the Churchill River and boreal forests.  Though she didn’t receive formal art education in the north, she was taught traditional crafts by her neighborhood Cree grandmothers, such as weaving, beading, moccasin making and a little birch bark biting.  She learned to draw by copying the Archie comics that were prevalent in her home as her mother is from South America and the comics helped her to learn English.  Her father told her that the comics also inspired her name.
