Hi This is Erin Hill your International Travel Sketch tutor. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for some magical 2019 sketch tours.
I've been hosting bespoke sketch holidays since 2001 and for me discovering the ‘off the beaten track’ places are far more meaningful and you feel part of the neighbourhood. You may not always find the places we go to on your own.

All levels of sketching welcome, as on all my tours.
The priority will be using the special Erin Hill Sketching techniques to more quickly than you can believe, produce work to a standard you did not think possible. For watercolour enthusiasts, you’ll adore the way we use this medium.
That is my pledge.

I work with each student daily and as we move through historic locations to have you progressing confidently on your own sketching journey. A relaxed but mindful journey extending your own artistic abilities against the daily vista of some of the most beautiful scenery wherever we are.

We adore the social interactions, having conversation with a local store keeper, seeing ancient architecture and hearing it’s history in lesser known places, eating in small bistros owned by someone we know, you get the idea!

As sketchers, we like to stay somewhere for a few days and feel like we’re at home.
We can get to know the place a little and take time to sketch what fascinates us. Explore a bit, eat and drink locally and sketch together.

Erin Hill Sketch Tours are specifically designed for those who like to travel in comfort and immerse themselves in sketching with a fully escorted likeminded group.
Nothing to think about but enjoying the experience from the moment we meet you till the day we depart.
