Erin Hill Small Sketch Workshops. France

Small group Workshops based in Trausse and Caunes, the wine growing region of Languedoc
I can't wait to welcome you to our tiny secret villages where I've been loving my French life for 20 years.

We'll sketch in my Studio in the tiny village of Trausse Minervois which is 'my village' and in the slightly larger village of Caunes Minervois, where you'll be staying. There are so may typical French scenes you'll adore, plus wonderful local bars and bistros for dining, wining and sketching. And we're bound to catch up with locals who love an aperitif!

I'm taking just 4 people per Workshop.
A fab opportunity to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. Bring your art group. Bring family members. Bring your best friends.
Don't worry if you've never sketched before, as each Workshop is tailored to the needs of the students taking part, helping you through a programme of foundation skills with the simple ErinHill Sketching method until you become a confident and passionate travel sketcher.
For experienced sketchers I will guide you to let go and get looser. This is what I find most sketchers want to do.  You'll be amazed.

You'll be sketching will be in the Languedoc wine growing regions of South of France. Each day we'll choose a gorgeous location and create a sketchbook memory every time. We have brilliant markets if you like that. Glorious food and cheeses if that's your passion and just wait till you try the local wines! And the prices! You'll never drink anything else ever again.
