We start with first steps in sketching, then on location where we’ll sketch a subject typical of the area, all carefully guided by your tutor.

Annette who is passionate about the French culture and countryside, will take us to some lesser known towns and villages of Languedoc.   You will visit ‘off the beaten track’ locations full of history and character; plus discovering local foods and wines will be high on the menu too.

Events with Annette will include sketch stops in characterful cafes, castles and wineries, plus the chance to enjoy plenty of laughs and some fabulous French cuisine along the way!

Our foundation SKETCHING Workshops with Annette, (our France director and Languedoc tutor) at ErinHill Sketch School are booking now.

For New Sketchers, we teach you to sketch – or Travel Sketch as we call it. Rather than traditional drawing, illustration or painting, a sketch is an impression. Those first spontaneous lines as you see them in the time you have. There’s no right or wrong. Anyone can do it. You are sketching within an hour.

Erin has a unique teaching system which will get you sketching a simple impression within a very short time. All our tutors are fully qualified in the EHS system so you can expect the same high quality experience  in any of our schools.
Travel Sketching means being on the move. That means time can be limited.  We teach you to sketch a quick impression of the world around you, at home or on the move. You may have only a few minutes but it’s enough time to get some quick shapes down.

Leave your fears at the door. We will show you step by step how to go about it. Before long you will seeing the world in a new way. Once you’ve completed our ‘new’ Classes or Workshops we expand your sketching skills and help you to continue your sketch adventures.

Our locations will be based around villages from Fabrezan to Olonzac and some in between. Get in touch to see if we’re near you.
