Welcome to ErinHill Sketching ….Yes You CAN Sketch……..
‘One of the best things about learning to Travel Sketch is the pleasure you get from putting lines on paper, the fun people you learn with, and the amount of laughing you’ll do.’
Erin Hill Sketching is a studio-turned-international school that offers foundation classes in Australia, New Zealand, and the South of France.
The school uses simple approaches, like imposing time limits, to help new students get to the essence of a sketch — rather than overdoing and overthinking it. “The simpler the better,” “There’s no right or wrong.”
It’s about you and the image you capture.”

THE ESSENTIAL EHS SKETCH KIT Sketch Kit info
Again, they will be learning a new trick or technique with a few surprises thrown in.
You’ll learn to apply colour in a very simple way.
We are guiding you to let go, loosen up and feel free.
Travel Sketching means we sketch rain or shine.
Bring a big umbrella if it looks like rain, and a sun hat if you feel the heat.
A reasonable level of fitness is important, and bring a fold up stool if you like.
WHAT MAKES ERINHILL SKETCHING DIFFERENT?
This is not an Art Class as you know it. We won’t be teaching you to paint. Or draw. That’s right!
We will however teach you the foundation skills of how to see, to sketch an impression, and apply colour.
No pencils, erasers or rulers. Oh dear – how terrifying you think!
But not so – once we show you how to start there’ll be no stopping you.
Wibbly wobbly is just fine.
Nothing matters but enjoying what you do.
EHS ART SCHOOLS are in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, South of France and in mid 2018, Boston and New York.
EHS SKETCH HOLIDAYS are designed for those who are passionate about travel, sketching, history and discovering slightly out of the way places they may not find on their own.
All the above with a fully escorted group.
We take you to magical parts of Europe and Greek Isles, USA and South Pacific.
WHO ARE OUR STUDENTS?
Our students come from all walks of life.
People who’ve always wanted to sketch but never felt they could.

In fact EHS is for everybody.
