Take home the ultimate souvenir, a thoughtful and inspired Travel Diary. Through writing, sketching, and painting, create a book filled with Italian inspiration weaving together both experiences and beautiful images of ancient surroundings. During this week-long workshop, students will capture the magnificent beauty of Orvieto by producing page after page of writings and artworks, to chronicle their inner journey of unique thoughts, and emotions, along with the outer journey of everything that surrounds them.
In the studio, you will assemble your perfect travel art bag, which is a gathering of tools used for making art during any travel situation. Practice straightforward fluid writing, drawing, and painting techniques to commemorate the memorable moments of this unforgettable journey. The resulting diary pages will be imbued with heartfelt words, colors and textures of Italy, employing new found skills learned in the workshop that you will be able to use in future art-making.
No experience needed - just a sense of adventure and openness to have fun.

Tracie is also actively pursuing her dream of licensing artworks. Her first cotton quilting fabric line, "Nature Inspired" by Windham Fabrics, debuted in the fall of 2010 with great success. She launched a second fabric line, "Garden Tales", in the fall of 2011, in which her art was quickly likened to that of a modern day Beatrix Potter. Her much anticipated third fabric collection, "Our House", arrived in retail stores in June 2013. Tracie's 2012 "Nature Inspired Birds" calendar line by TF Publishing was selected as an early buy in retail stores. And, she continues to delight her ever growing number of fans with additional calendar products by TF Publishing for 2013, 2014, and beyond. In 2012, Tracie also debuted an exciting new line of art/craft stencil designs with Stencil Girl Products. And finally, Tracie is currently working with a well respected gift company on a new line of products debuting in Spring of 2014.
