Join Artist/Educator Meagan Burns in the Continuous Line Fundamentals three times per week for one hour to greatly improve your drawing abilities by doing drawing warm-ups, pattern making and short timed continuous line sketches.
The Continuous Line practice is akin to taking vitamins for drawing; these classes do not focus on teaching you how to draw like anyone but yourself! Instead, this class encourages participants to embrace their unique style of line making, regardless of the medium. By incorporating a continuous line warm up practice into a daily drawing routine, participants can expect to see improvement in the quality and expressiveness of one's drawings.
Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner, this fundamental practice can have a significant impact on your drawing ability. Meagan will offer proven tips and techniques for incorporating continuous line practice into your routine, and guide you towards discovering your own personal style.

Meagan Burns artist, instructor and workshop creator, originally from Chicago, first moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2009 and now lives in Mexico City where she helps people plow through their drawing fears by practicing Continuous Line Urban Sketching in the fascinating streets of Mexico City and beyond. She rallied the San Miguel de Allende sketching community to become a Regional Chapter of Urban Sketchers in 2016, with artists sketching each week with the group from around the world. Background is marketing, graphic design and organic meat, now she provides her community with art making opportunities, urban sketching and delicious tacos.
In the Continuous Line Storytelling Group, Meagan offers tips and techniques that will allow you to become a stronger line maker by using the concept of continuous line drawing — one powerful, moving line that dances across your page — a technique Meagan champions to help artists of all skill levels better capture their experience of a location with a more organic and free flowing energy. The exercises will encourage you to lean into and develop your own personal drawing style and to let go of judgment because only you can tell your story.
Art Leap Adventures is an art workshop tour business Meagan created in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2017. Everything moved to Zoom classes during the pandemic, teaching back-to-back sketch classes three times a week in the Zoom Sketch Sessions, as well as Watercolor Drama Watercolor workshops with friend and fellow artist Laurie Richards. In-person travel workshops re-started in 2022, with urban sketching workshops and retreats in Oaxaca, Mexico City, Guanajuato and Sayulita, and soon, San Francisco. Stay tuned for more on-location workshops with Meagan.
