Erin is an International Sketch tutor with courses and workshops in Australia, New Zealand and Southern France, where she teaches her own simple and therapeutic way to become a sketcher.
Workshops also take place in Boston and New York other USA, and European cities by invitation.
Erin has been organising and tutoring Sketch Tours and Workshops since 2008.


Our Workshops begin in a cafe where we have coffee and do a warmup sketch for the day, along the lines of the subject we’ll be sketching on location. In early afternoon we take a lunch break and recharge our sketching batteries. We tend to sketch the table settings around us or a view we may spy from our table, in between lunch plates. Sketching tends to take over from eating as you’ll notice. To finish we sketch at another quick outdoor location and apply colour as we’ve been doing with the EH custom colours.
Make your own arrangements to arrive in the city where we sketch, and find some lovely accommodation for your group. Complete the booking form and secure your place for some incredible sketching with us.

This is the essence of the South of France where I’ve spent so may summers. Did you ever read Rumer Godden’s The Greengage Summer? For me it all began there.
Vineyards stretch as far as you can see, azure skies meeting the Midi Canal and the avenues of plane trees. Where the food you are served has been grown next door, and the recipes are those tried and tested over hundreds of years. Historic Cathar castles, romantic region of medieval troubadour poets and the Knights Templar. The new and traditional wines you’ll discover will surprise you with the delicious varieties from one domaine to another.

Sketching threads all these stories together in a journal you’ll fill with forever memories.

If you can get the colours in the kit, particularly the yellow ochre aquarelle pencil, then that is more important than the brand.

We look forward to having you join us on these very personal Workshops.
