Dramatic coastlines, sprawling wisteria, eclectic shops, old friends and new. Northern Italy sun kissed in the springtime. Sometimes a travel experience is so vivid, sketch and color can’t capture it all. Enter Pam Garrison, and The Blue Walk’s Art Walk Italy Art Journal Workshop. This is an art vacation workshop of sketching and ephemera-collecting that incorporates lettering, watercolors, inspiring instruction, and creativity in the field.

About Pam Garrison

Much loved art blogger, teacher, print artist, and online presence, Pam Garrison brings her approachable style and simplified techniques to inspire participants. You will create your own keepsake sketchbook as you walk, sketch, paint and collect through Milan, the Italian Riviera, and Lake Como. Not enough? Stay on with an optional 3-night extension. Visit Padua, Venice and Verona. (The extension will not have a formal art program, but you will be traveling with fellow ArtWalkers and there will be time for “arting”.)

Pam is a creative adventurer who loves for her work to inspire others, to art journal, craft, paint, stitch… “Anything your heart desires!”, is her advice.

“I am deeply passionate about creating and inspiring others to create.”

Pam shares with anyone curious to explore or expand their own art making. “I especially love interesting color combinations and using everyday materials in new ways. We’ll leave the ArtWalk Italy tour with our own one-of-a-kind art travel journals to treasure. It’s a special souvenir that will bring you right back to your time enjoying, exploring and creating in Italy whenever you page through it.”
