  • Great for interstate and overseas people to get the basic skills to take away with them.
  • Perfect as a way to try sketching and then join a regular class
  • A great way for our new Sketchers already in classes to polish up

Our workshop format

All ErinHill travel sketching classes & workshops have a 3 part structure:

1) Meet at ErinHill Studio, 97 Sydney Road, Manly, just before 10am. Your tutor will greet you and your Sketch Kit will be waiting. Once everyone is comfortable we have tea or coffee to help us get started before learning some technique.

2) Then we head off outdoors to sketch our theme of the day on-location in Manly

3) Lunch is about 1pm, (don’t forget your lunch money) where do our second on-location sketch – interiors, people or objects while having a coffee or lunch.


What to bring
  • Rain gear if weather looks iffy
  • Money for lunch or coffee
  • Smiles and willingness to try something new!


Workshop cost

$300 per person (Includes full sketch kit valued at $150)
