From Photo to Travel Journal

Course: Photo to Travel Journal

An eight-week course to help you create vivid and exciting travel journals. We will be working with a variety of journaling tools to enhance recall of trips you’ve already taken and to maintain your journal while actively traveling in the future.

Materials developed by Pam Boyer over her twenty-five years of using Julia’s tools.

The Process:

We will use photos from your trips to encourage memories and sensory details to be used in your journal. You will learn to use Photoshop Elements to organize and improve your photos. Don’t worry, it’s easy peasy. And, you will be helped every step of the way.

What We'll Do:

Together we'll work through the process, which includes learning journaling techniques.

  • Clustering
  • Memory Lists
  • Captured Moments
  • Character Sketches

These practices can be used in journaling for other purposes as well.

You Don't Have to Be a Good Writer!

Put all your concerns about your ability to write aside: None require that you be a good writer.

You Don't Have to Share a Word with Anyone

Put all your concerns about privacy aside: You do not have to share any of your work, if you don’t choose to.

You Will Benefit from the Group Environment

The class periods will involve learning new tools, sharing progress and frustrations and supporting each other’s journey.
