We will be introducing our Sketch&Cool classes with ‘Cooking by the Canal du Midi’ with Heather and David Hayes. Just a few dates available. We start with an intro to what we’ll be cooking that day, and along the way we’ll create our own illustrated recipe. Lunch will be served which you helped create, and have a memory forever of the day in your sketchbook. Sketch kit provided.

If you don’t have your own sketch kit we will supply enough to get you sketching and adding colour.
If you are within 45 mins of Narbonne we can begin the tour in your village.
For more than 2 people you will need your own car.
We start with first steps in sketching, then on location where we’ll sketch a subject typical of the area, all carefully guided by your tutor.
Lunch will be at a local restaurant and you’ll have a chance to try dishes of the region with a glass of wine to match.

Annette who is passionate about the French culture and countryside, will take us to some lesser known towns and villages of Languedoc.   You will visit ‘off the beaten track’ locations full of history and character; plus discovering local foods and wines will be high on the menu too.

Events with Annette will include sketch stops in characterful cafes, castles and wineries, plus the chance to enjoy plenty of laughs and some fabulous French cuisine along the way!

Our foundation SKETCHING Workshops  with Annette at ErinHill Sketching are booking now.

For New Sketchers, we teach you to sketch – or Travel Sketch as we call it. Rather than traditional drawing, illustration or painting, a sketch is an impression. Those first spontaneous lines as you see them in the time you have. There’s no right or wrong. Anyone can do it. You are sketching within an hour.

Erin has a unique teaching system which will get you sketching a simple impression within a very short time. Travel Sketching means being on the move. That means time can be limited.  We teach you to sketch a quick impression of the world around you, at home or on the move. You may have only a few minutes but it’s enough time to get some quick shapes down.

Anybody can learn to sketch with the ErinHill system. Leave your fears at the door. We will show you step by step how to go about it. Before long you will seeing the world in a new way. Once you’ve completed our classes or Workshops you may like to join General classes and continue your sketch adventures.

Our locations will be based around villages from Fabrezan to Olonzac and some in between. Get in touch to see if we’re near you.

Other EHS schools are based in Sydney Australia, Melbourne Australia, Auckland NZ, and South East Asia
