first time sketch by someone who never thought he could!

We offer a range of opportunities so that you can learn to sketch and capture the beauty of Languedoc whilst having a really enjoyable time in the process!

3-hour Sketching Workshops

Our intensive 3-hour Sketch Workshops will get you producing great sketches in a very short space of time!  Step by step and using the ErinHill system, we observe and sketch the world around us: quick impressions to capture a moment – anywhere, anytime and anything!

We start with a sketching “warm-up” – usually indoors to establish the focus for the day, and then take our sketchbooks ‘out and about’ – sketching our subject ‘en plein air’!

No class is ever the same and  you’ll learn different skills and techniques every time.  The emphasis for our classes is on observation, fun and living in the “now”!

If you have never sketched before, or don’t think that you can, come along to any workshop and be amazed at what you can do in just a couple of hours.  Each class is carefully designed according to the location and participants in the group.

The 5-class programme for groups

For 4+ students the 5-class option is the ideal way to learn to sketch – in the company of good friends you’ll study all manner of subjects on dates and in locations to suit your group.

Discovery Days: Sketch & Cook, Sketch & Sip, Sketch & Cycle

There is so much to explore and discover in Languedoc that for a really special experience we have combined a days sketching with discovering wines, foods, special visits or other activities.  Book one of our Discovery Days and you’ll have a fabulous day out to remember forever!  Superb for small groups.  Subject to availability, dates/locations can be arranged to suit you.

Sketch Holidays

We have some dates in the diary so that you can get away from it all and enjoy a few days sketching in southern France.   Our Sketch Holidays are suitable for people already sketching or absolute beginners.

We do hope you’d like to sketch with us – if you have any questions, please just get in touch!
