About the Studio

[Text in here about why this studio space is lovely and why we chose it…] Conveniently placed for our many North Shore students to get to. We have parking in nearby streets for you, with our permit. We are a 10 minute walk up Sydney Rd from the ferry wharf.

Parking information
We have 3 parking permits for Tower Hill area, on the same side as the Studio, up Sydney Rd and down George and James Sts. This gives you free parking for the duration of our classes, but must be returned at the end of class. First in first served.

Many students park just beyond the Fairlight shops where there is unlimited parking.Walk down the hill to The Studio. Bus back up from Belgrave Street to Fairlight shops after class. Easy.

Our tutors

Erin Hill
From my background as Art Director in major Ad Agencies, graphic design, fine art and illustration, I’ve pared down the essentials to create the ErinHill Travel Sketching System which we use in all our Schools. > Read more about Erin

Toni Konijn
Producer of Cherish Books. Photographer. Artist & Painter. Traveller and Sketcher. EHSTravel Sketch Tutor. Tutoring at EHS and facilitating the travel sketching process is so much fun! I love seeing students learning to see the world around them in new ways, learning to translate their everyday observations into sketches that come to reflect their own unique style. My tutoring style is student-centred. I aim to guide students to express their own creativity, sketching in an environment where students feel supported and confidence soars. No judgement, no scores, art for art sake. > Read more about Toni

Kathy Wesson
As a tutor I had not anticipated the quiet joy I would feel, seeing others discover their artistic flair or awaken a long dormant creative passion. This is the happy by-product of being a tutor at Erin Hill Studio. Nor did I realise how social sketching could be, as I now realise there’s a whole alternative universe of passionate sketchers out there. > Read more about Kathy
