About this event

The Mexican culture takes their "Dia de los Muertos" holiday quite seriously, as it's a time to honor, remember and celebrate family members and dearly departed who've come before them, and the gatherings take place in their homes, in cemeteries and on the family member's grave site. It's a day of remembrance, and in the past few years, Mexico City has found new and exciting ways for people to participate in this event, so we're inviting small group of sketchers to see and sketch the Mexico City events this year. There's never enough time to see it all, but in this dynamic workshop we'll be based in Roma Norte and we'll take time to explore this hip urban neighborhood, the Centro Historico and two of the city's fascinating top-notch museums.

We'll start our day with drawing warmups and on-location continuous line practices before we set out to produce a sketchbook of the colorful scenes before us. We'll practice sketching architecture, people, altars, museums and tacos and also take time to sit on a park bench to bask in the magic that is Mexico City during the Muertos week.

Continuous Line Urban Sketching is a tool to help you strengthen your drawing abilities and Mexico City is the perfect city to practice this art. At the end of this workshop, your sketchbook will be filled with the magic of Mexico City as only you experienced it.

Organized, managed and instruction by artist/instructor Meagan Burns, who's been living in Mexico for 8 years, leading sketch workshops and drawing everyday. To see Meagan's work, please check her IG: https://www.instagram.com/meagan_burns_/
