See the June 2009 posting that's titled "Picture of Journaling Materials"

Beverly Hills Adult School

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 Material List Follows

1:30-3:30 pm

Journal your vacation or special events

In 4 two 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


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.

6. A waterproof fine tip black pen. I use Zig Millenium black .01 pen or

Micron Pigma .01 or similar tool

7. A mechanical pencil that the lead can be retracted to keep a tip. It can be

HB or 2H lead

8. Small blunt tip scissors

9. Glue stick
