Testimonials

I found Sketching Spain-Barcelona when I was missing travelling and wanting to fill COVID self-quarantining space with something fun and productive.  This online course was just what I needed!  I was able to virtually visit Barcelona and learn how to create a unique and artful travel journal. Travel guide Danny and art teacher Judith put together an engaging and educational course.  It will make you count the months until we can travel again!

The Sketching Spain online class has taken me right back to my wonderful week in and around Barcelona with Judith and Danny a couple years ago.  Lots of good journaling tips from Judith, as always, and Danny takes you on a fun tour, recipes included, of Barcelona. I can’t wait to take another journey with them, after my planned trip for Oct., 2020 was cancelled.
