Everyday Travels- Capture the Wow! Class
Saturday, September 30th, 11:30-4:30PM
Instructor: Cynthia Morris
This class is a unique workshop with Cynthia Morris, a local creativity coach, author, and artist. We love travel journals from faraway places, but we’re particularly struck by the ones that capture everyday adventures. Journeys, after all, are about learning to see familiar places through new eyes as well as going on a grand tour. Cynthia’s workshop is created in that spirit. You’ll learn new techniques that make it easy to capture both everyday life and faraway adventures through journaling, but the focus is less on art making than on experiencing the world around you in a new way – that is, “Capturing the Wow!” You’ll gain permission (from yourself!) to be messy and playful as you fill your journal to bursting with color, drawings, and doodles. In the process, discover how keeping an illustrated journal can enrich your life. There’s no experience or artistic skill required. Just show up with curiosity, a sense of fun, and a willingness to play!
Please bring the following materials:
- glue stick or glue tape for cardstock
- markers, watercolors, crayons, pencils, or paints - your preference
- collage materials - cards, paper, ephemera
- scissors for fine cutting (optional)
- sack lunch and water bottle (optional)
- all other materials will be provided, including a pocket size Moleskine Japanese (accordion fold) Album
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
Cynthia Morris, a published author and creativity coach, has been keeping written journals since 1994 and started filling them with colorful illustrations in 2004. She has written two e-books on how anyone can use art-making techniques to enjoy life more. Her mission? To help people have more fun and feel more creative. When Cynthia's not in her Denver office, she's riding her bicycle, practicing yoga, frolicking in the park, whipping up a feast in the kitchen, snuggled up reading a book, or popping over to Europe. Through her company Original Impulse, Cynthia leads creativity workshops in Europe like the one she teaches at Two Hands Paperie. She finds that keeping an illustrated journal makes her happy.

I usually use a watercolor notebook when I travel to capture my wow but this time I tried something different. Check out my wow from a recent trip to Mexico.
