Project Description

Explore a place unfamiliar to you and document it in any medium


Your assignment is to explore a place unfamiliar to you and document the journey.

When we're feeling in a creative rut, we like to try a new medium of expression- whether it's photography, illustration, or ceramics to express our vision. We encourage you to do the same!

A few helpful resources to get you started:

  • Visit our Instagram for a look at our photo project we've been documenting throughout the year
  • Check out our own Wanderlist on


Use your project workspace as a place to brainstorm, record ideas, and share your exploratory documentation. To get started, name your adventure and tell us what medium you want to explore! A finished project includes:

  • The name of your trip
  • A short description of your trip
  • Documentation of your trip in your chosen medium
