Here's something fun! Now when you visit San Miguel de Allende, you can book an EXPERIENCE while you book your Airbnb, because Meagan is an Official Host of a San Miguel de Allende Experience!
If you are not familiar with the new service, Airbnb is an online resource for homestays and roomshares around the world, and recently they added the option to include Experiences when you visit new cities. Not all cities are approved for this feature, but San Miguel de Allende is, and you can now "Travel Sketch Your Way Around SMA!, with Meagan Burns as your host.
You have an option of a few different days per week to book this experience, which will also include a small sketchbook and a pencil. I will bring other art supplies so participants can add color and other details before the experience is over.
Travel sketching is a favorite hobby of mine, I sketch daily, and always when I travel, so I thought my not offer it to the good many tourists who now visit our fair guest city. This is an opportunity for a variety of visitors, from advanced artists to people who haven't drawn since childhood, so the instruction is loose, casual and friendly, with a minimum of technical direction, and a lot of time for sketching. We'll end at a favorite café with a nice coffee and a chat about our experience.
If you have friends our family visiting San Miguel de Allende in the coming weeks and months, and are looking for something fun to do, join me on a "Travel Sketch" Experience and they'll have the best souvenir to take home: their own sketches! Locals are welcome to join, but must sign up through Airbnb. Click the image of me sketching in the streets to sign up:
