If you thought Mexico had color and energy, you should see it at this time of the year. If you always wanted to sketch in Mexico City but didn’t think you could do it on your own, you want to come along with us. Art Leap Adventures will take care of all of it for you, and I promise you’ll go home with a sketchbook full of vibrant, energy and color-filled sketches.

Here’s a 5-minute video from demonstrating gesture sketching, which we’ll have lots of chances to practice in Mexico City!

Join us for this culturally rich deep dive into the Centro Historico. We’ll stay in the heart of the Zocolo, near the stunning Metropolitan Cathedral  and we’ll discover some of it’s history and architecture as we create a travel sketchbook of the energetic and colorful cityscape around us. We’ll learn to sketch people and places. We’ll take the fear out of sketching people on the move, action-filled sketches and architecture. We’ll learn quick-capture techniques, so you’ll never complain about not having enough time to draw anything ever again. And we’ll discuss techniques for capturing vibrant color in your sketches. You‘ll go home knowing you’ve seen and sketched Mexico City’s Centro Historico like you never imagined.
