Half day workshops for those new to sketching. Different theme each month.


Why choose a ‘Taste of Sketching’ workshop?

  • Great for those who haven’t sketched with us before and are interested in discovering Travel Sketching through a favourite subject
  • An excellent way for interstate/overseas visitors to get those first vital skills in Travel Sketching.
  • A fun day out and learn to see the world around you as you never have before.

The Erin Hill difference

We started out in Manly 7yrs ago and have perfected an approach to sketching that keeps it simple, fast and free. We’re not your typical art school, we focus on easy to learn techniques, fast impressions and finding your personal style. It’s about letting go and enjoying the image you capture.
