Sunday Workshops are designed for those new to sketching and would like to learn the first skills and then progress those skills later. You need no previous art experience. Designed for people who are too far away for weekly classes but can get to a monthly Workshop.
Start with ‘TASTE, perfect for the first time sketcher.
then next month move onto ‘NEXT STEPS. You’ll have new subjects each time.

A fun day in Manly and a great way to discover our unique approach to travel sketching.
Everyone can learn with the Erin Hill method.
We loan you our customised sketch kit for the day. The sketchbook is your gift from us.
Do bring lunch and coffee money and a big smile.

Erin is an internationally followed Travel Sketch tutor, renown for her ability to take sketchers from their early moments with a sketchbook and pen to pride and astonishment at the sketching result they achieve. Erin works alongside you at all Workshops to guide you.

The trick is her ability to break down into deceptively simple steps the way the eye works with the hand to produce a sketch image. Experienced and new sketchers alike credit her with improving their way of seeing and the techniques they use to render an image.

She has unique techniques on using colour, which results in her own stunningly bright images. Mixed with a letting go approach to image making she helps sketchers find their own creative style.

She has taught hundreds of sketchers around the world in her own workshops in France, Spain, North Africa, Asia-Pacific and the US. She has many friends in the Urban Sketchers movement and last year was invited to run a very successful workshop for tutors in the Art Therapy dept at the prestigious New York College of the Visual Arts.

You are also welcome to contact Erin if you’d like a Workshop, Travel Sketch Holiday or Private Sketching Tour worldwide.
