Here is a post from last year about packing your art journal kit. (Yes! I am facilitating another Journal Meet on Friday, May 21 @ 7 pm, you can sign up here at the Yahoo Group; just go to the database and you'll see the listing for the Journal Meet.)
Part of the fun in attending art retreats, classes or traveling with your journal is the anticipation. Pack your favorite supplies with an eye to minimalism (what?! MINIMALISM?!) Yes, bring your minimum of favorite items with you. It's an opportunity to get creative with a limited amount of supplies.
And don't forget to bring a small journal with you to all of your classes for notes and, yes, fodder.
When traveling through Ireland a few years ago with my husband and (at that time) two teenagers. I kept it very simple: Journal, glue, scissors, pen and watercolors with a waterbrush. I didn't have time for much more than that. As it turned out, it was all I needed.
