Mexican Sketching Retreat in San Miguel de Allende

I hope your first days of summer are going well!

While I love British Columbia in summer, I’m dreaming of Mexico in the fall. This fall I’m offering a really special event, with my colleague Rhoda Draws. Yes, that’s her real last name … now!

Rhoda and I did an online course this past season on her Fast & Loose Sketching technique.

We enjoyed collaborating so much that we’ve decided to offer an in-person sketching retreat in gorgeous San Miguel de Allende, Mx where she lives … during the magnificent Dia de los Muertos (Day of Dead) festivities.

This is the 4th year that Rhoda has hosted this event. Having attended last year I can attest to how wonderful it is.

This year she’s graciously letting me hijack it for my Graphic Recording / Graphic Facilitation tribe.

Her techniques fit in so well with the speed that we have to work in GR/GF. I’ve really enjoyed adding them to my toolkit and introducing others to Rhoda and her methods.


Treat your Inner Artist to a productive and fun week with fellow travelers in the Graphic Recording / Graphic Facilitation field. We look forward to hosting you in beautiful San Miguel de Allende!

Yours in visual expansion,

Christina Merkley and Rhoda Draws

P.S.  San Miguel is an attraction in and of itself … world heritage city that is a mecca for artists of all mediums!  It’s especially beautiful with the pomp and circumstance of the Day of the Dead festivities … food for your heart and soul!
