Most Memorable Meals
at Bari Zaki Studio

In this workshop you will learn to capture your most delectable ­food memories in a sketchbook journal – from dreamy meals out on the town to your favorite family recipes via words and images! Anne will guide you using delightful page layouts, creative lettering and playful drawing and design techniques.

You can do a combo book or straight up one way….

For the Foodie: ‘MOST MEMORABLE MEALS’ – the restaurant, or locale, the menu, your dining partner(s), the occasion, what made it all so memorable!

For the cook: ‘FAVORITE RECIPES’ – ingredients, recipe history, tips, family quips, your memories sharing them with your family over the years.

Journaling, I believe, is a practice that teaches us better than any other the elusive art of solitude, how to be present with our own selves, bear witness to our experience, and fully inhabit our inner lives.” – Maria Popova

“May I recommend a workshop that will change your studio practice and life itself? Anne is an artist who communicates with drawing and HEART like no one I know.” – Laura Nugent


** “Anne will help you learn to master the creation of a book that is all about you!”

** “This workshop was informative, inspiring and fun. You don’t have to be an artist to do it. I would recommend it to all of my friends and family.”

** “Anne is a great teacher – learning made fun and she has the most amazing collection of markers!”

** “I took Anne’s class at the end of April and have kept at it ever since. Tho’ my job is to be creative, I find working in my journal every day something I am the total boss of. Also, I find myself becoming more creative at work.” – Karen S.

** “It was inspiring. I enjoyed the company of the leader and the other participants. I liked the exercise and the time drawing our own journals.” – Leslie V.

** “It was fun, relaxed, creative, inspiring, and with a great group of people.”
