Monthly Sketch Workshops

May 28th  – ‘New to Sketching’ – ‘Step by step to becoming a sketcher’ – A great intro to finding your creative side particularly if you have never sketched, or perhaps are in New Sketchers classes and would like to continue the journey.


Every other month we have Travel Sketching Workshops to explore some of our unique Erin Hill Sketching techniques and tricks. You’ll also have a lot of fun in our very relaxed Workshops.

For NEW SKETCHERS  ‘A Taste of Sketching’ Workshops are designed for people who have not sketched before and are keen to learn the ErinHill unique way of Travel Sketching
– that quick impression,
– just a few lines
– add a dash of colour.
You will be sketching before you know it and no previous experience is needed.
If you haven’t sketched with us before, this is your entree.

  • Great for people not from Sydney who cannot attend regular weekly classes
  • 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.

Art Materials you’ll need: You’ll need the Full Sketch Kit as you’ll be using both mediums including watercolours. Kits are available in the Studio at your first lesson. Details below.

Sundays 10am – 3.00pm.
