Would you like to spend a day at a beautiful location, working in your art journal, getting inspired, and learning new techniques? If so, this art journaling retreat is just what you need.

The beautiful Inspiration Ranch in Magnolia, TX will be the amazing backdrop to this peaceful retreat. Participants will have the opportunity to work in their art journals, watch demonstrations, use new/different tools and mediums, and be inspired by other like-minded art journalers.

A light breakfast will be provided. Participants should bring a sack lunch. Bottled water and coffee will be available.

Here are a few things to look forward to at the retreat.


There will be three optional demos scheduled throughout the retreat.

  • 1.       Creating unique collage papers
  • 2.       Using modeling paste to add dimension to art journal pages
  • 3.       Customizing art journal covers


Participants will have access to the use of various tools and mediums such as stencils, stamps, collage papers, paints, acrylic markers, oil pastels, and more.

Each participant will receive handouts with useful information, inspirational quotes, and journal prompts.


Several door prizes will be given throughout the workshop.
