Travel Art Kits

sorting the essentials

Apr 21, 2023

I’ll be traveling to Europe in a few days for a 10 day art retreat in the Perigord/Dordogne region of France. While I’m not certain yet how our days will be spent, I understand that there will be some studio time each day along with day trips to local destinations; quaint villages, crumbling castles and, I dearly hope, cave paintings. I’m still unhappy with not having more detail about what to expect less that a week out , but I am doing my best to roll with it.

Based on my best guesses, and after watching several other artist’s videos on the subject, I’ve put together two travel kits for capturing my experiences; one very tiny for short excursions and a larger one for where ever it makes sense to have more tools available.

I hope I will remember to use them and not get too distracted with pastries, wine and cheese!
