By Guy Harrison, Media & Marketing Specialist

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - Thanks to digital photography, capturing memories - especially those along an adventure or a vacation - has become a highly digitized process.

Through Central Arizona College's Lifelong Learners program, however, students can learn how to snare those breathtaking moments in more creative ways.

Keeping a Travel Journal - The Art of Capturing Memories is a one-day, three-hour course scheduled for Sat., May 28, from 9 a.m.-Noon at CAC's Superstition Mountain Campus. C.A.L.L. members may register for the class at a cost of $20 while non-members pay a $35 fee.

Travel journals are perfect for people who enjoy traveling and recording their memories in a creative way.
During the class, students will explore different techniques including: watercolor, pencil, water-based color pencils, rubbings and ink to capture the place, people and events you experience. An overview of materials and methods will be shared and discussed. Students are encouraged to bring their travel journals and ideas to start recording their next adventure.

Karen McLain will instruct the class. She is a third-generation Arizona native with a degree in studio art from Arizona State University.

McLain finds joy and inspiration riding into the quiet places of the desert - which is reflected in her work. Join this popular plein aire painter who is famous for her animal portraits.
