Tapping Into the Flow


Come join us on a eight day adventure in Portugal. Sightseeing, exploring, and an in depth visual journaling workshop with American artists, Tracy and Teesha Moore. Through our immersion in this amazing and vibrant culture, we will delve deep into the world of personal art journaling. We will also explore the many creative uses of Lomo cameras to create perfect shots to document our lives through our journals. Light painting, double exposure, cross-processing…we will cover it all, including ways to alter and manipulate your photos after they are printed to give that added zing to your journal pages.

Join Visual Journal Artists, Teesha and Tracy Moore as they take you deep into the world of art journaling. Learn their secrets to creating pages that vibrate with energy, color and content. We will draw inspiration from beautiful Portugal and visually document our adventures onto the pages of our journals.

Teesha will delve into her unique brand of visual journaling, covering collage, paint, drawing, and incorporating text to create stunning pages that leap from your journal. With the small size of this group (10 students), and the length of this workshop, there will be lots of “one on one” time to go deeper into technique, theory, and practice than we have ever been able to go before.


Tracy will come armed with an arsenal of Lomo Cameras. These will be available for all to try during this workshop. Lomo Shots are one of Tracy’s favorite visual journaling tools. We will take these on our field trips and excursions to capture our many adventures together. This is a great opportunity to gain “hands on” experience with photo techniques like; light painting, double exposure, and cross-processing. We will incorporate our photos into our journals, as well as explore many photo altering techniques. He will also cover his unique drawing techniques and help you find a style that is authentically your own.

Teesha and Tracy are avid book binders as well. During this workshop we will also cover many aspects of creating our own journals. Tracy will teach his two favorite binding techniques, the “coptic stitch”, as well as the “long stitch”, and as time allows, we will construct small journals of our own to further enhance your creative life.

You will be able to do it all (journal making, journaling & lomography), or you may decide to focus all your efforts on either fully immersing yourself into journaling or making an armful of journals to fill when you get home.

Tracy and Teesha’s lives have been empowered by their journals and their love of Lomography. Nothing excites them more than helping others to find the truly freeing and life changing possibilities that manifest through the exploration and nurturing of one’s creative flow. While they both have their own aesthetic, they are even better as a team, providing a ying/yang experience for each student. This is a great workshop for every experience level, from truly beginners to the advanced artist.
