 Beverly Hills Adult School
 Summer Registration
 Journal your vacation or special events
Have you ever wanted to journal some of your vacations or special events? I’ll show you what I use and how to draw and write what you see. You don’t have to draw very well to do journaling. We will use some drawing, painting, collage, and other interesting techniques to add to your pages. Call the school to register and get material list. Or go to
 2 four hour classes
Monday June 29 and July 6th
10-2pm 10-2pm 4 hour class

Journal your vacation or special events

In two 4 hour classes, we will learn enough to get started on our journals. If you already journal we can work on improvements or just get new ideas to make it better. We will schedule some classes later to continue improving your journaling skills such as; mixing colors, how to draw what you see, how to draw quickly and polishing-up your illustration techniques.
Materials needed:
1.Fanny pack
2.Small watercolor set that is meant for outdoor painting.
There are many brands, some are as cheap as $16. They generally come with a pointed watercolor brush. I use a Windsor and Newton Cotman set with 12 colors. If a brush is not included bring a Windsor and Newton Series 707 size #3 sable brush.
3. Small jar,
1 oz. size, something like a little honey jar or jelly jar from a restaurant. This needs to be water-tight. Put into a small zip lock bag till you know for sure if it’s water-tight.
4. Small container with water (1oz.)
5. Journal that will fit into fanny pack.
 I like a 5x7 with black hard cover and spiral bound. It usually has paper suitable for sketching but will take watercolor. Canson and Strathmore make journals. Bring what you have and we’ll see what works best.
A waterproof fine tip black pen. I use Zig Millenium black .01 pen or Micron Pigma .01
A mechanical pencil that the lead can be retracted to keep a tip. It can be HB or 2H lead.
Small blunt tip scissors
Glue stick
I will show a photo of materials on my website so you can see what everything looks like. I will post some pictures of journaling examples on the website or on my blog site: The blog will have current and up-to-the-minute information.
