About Rhoda

Rhoda Draws sketch of a street

Rhoda Draws is an award-winning Urban Sketcher, cartoonist and figurative painter. During her long career as a caricature artist at events she developed a unique set of techniques for quickly capturing the essence of any subject. Rhoda teaches travelers how to use her methods to create sketches that are much more powerful and meaningful than the usual series of photographs.

Before relocating to San Miguel de Allende, Rhoda took small groups on sketching trips to Carmel and Hearst Castle in California, and to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Now she offers sketching excursions to Magical Towns in Central Mexico.

A master at demonstrating techniques while sketching along with you…

Rhoda provides guidance with professionalism and sensitivity. Her amazing energy, enthusiasm and great sense of humor is a joy to be around. Rhoda has inspired me to take my sketchbook with me everywhere and draw every day.
