EHS Tutor Training Workshops

Love the idea of teaching sketching in an EHS Studio somewhere in Sydney?
Or taking a fully supported Licence and operating your own EHS Studio somewhere in Australia or the world?


  • You need to attend a  2 week Tutor Training Workshop in Sydney, South of France, or Daku Resort Fiji.
  • Then spend some time shadowing classes to understand the techniques and class management. (Where possible)
  • You have a choice of training to be a tutor in an EHS Studio anywhere in Sydney on a contract basis, or taking a full licence to open your own EHS School elsewhere in the world. Your own small business and fully supported.


We have 2 part training Workshops, to qualify you to tutor both New Sketchers and General Sketchers using our own highly successful teaching system.

ErinHill Sketching has developed a unique and highly successful system for teaching Travel Sketching. Erin Hill has created planned step by step classes covering foundation skills in a relaxed manner.  Classes are not just Studio based, but move between locations and cafes as you would when traveling. Based on weekly classes, Workshops, Themed evening events and more.


We have another day at the end of the tutor training Workshop to discuss the marketing and management requirements of your EHS School.

If you are interested in becoming an EHS Travel Sketch Tutor, or Licence holder,  you need to complete the Workshops to become qualified.

You will be part of our online marketing machine which has developed considerable global reach, however you’ll need your own EHS website which you keep updated constantly and connecting with social media  to market your classes.

You will receive class structures guides for every term and demo sheets for every week of your classes. Online support and dial-in chats with other owners and able to contact us at any time for advice – and we appreciate your feedback. As a new entity in the world of art instruction we are still developing our sketch teaching mission. You are more than welcome to join us on the journey.

The EHS system teaches students to observe and quickly put down their impressions in the time they have. These are not traditional art classes as you know them, but rather a way of teaching students to see things in a new way. Nor are they painting or drawing classes. It’s about seeing. Getting your sketch down. Without any expectations of doing things ‘correctly’ or ‘perfectly’ students learn core drawing skills without any of the fear often associated with art classes. Therefore the learning experience is immensely enjoyable for people who didn’t believe they could be creative. The community that is created between students often make lasting friendships.

We have a custom designed minimal Sketch Kit which is portable and fits into a shoulder bag or similar and only these materials are used the early stages.

We are creating our own EHS community giving students a wonderful opportunity to join other schools when travelling, and meeting like minded students to sketch with.

We are currently looking for people to become qualified EHS tutors in Sydney and Eastern Suburbs and Northern Beaches to take casual positions with our studios. We have a places in our April Workshops if you contact us. People interested in sketch tutoring on a contract basis will find it an interesting part time arrangement.

We are always interested in talking to people who’d be interested in taking a licence to run their own EHS Sketch School. Of interest is Canberra, Brisbane, and Boston USA.

If interested in becoming a qualified EHS sketch tutor, and would like to talk over options, costs and timing and where you’ll train, please email Erin Hill.
