Erin is an internationally followed Travel Sketch tutor, renown for her ability to take sketchers from their early moments with a sketchbook and pen to pride and astonishment at the sketching result they achieve. Erin works alongside you at all Workshops to guide you.

The trick is her ability to break down into deceptively simple steps the way the eye works with the hand to produce a sketch image. Experienced and new sketchers alike credit her with improving their way of seeing and the techniques they use to render an image.

She has unique techniques on using colour, which results in her own stunningly bright images. Mixed with a letting go approach to image making she helps sketchers find their own creative style.

She has taught hundreds of sketchers around the world in her own workshops in France, Spain, North Africa, Asia-Pacific and the US. She has many friends in the Urban Sketchers movement and last year was invited to run a very successful workshop for tutors at the prestigious New York College of the Visual Arts.

You are also welcome to contact Erin if you’d like to have a Workshop or Travel Sketch Holiday in your area, worldwide.



We have so many people who’d love to learn the first steps in Urban and Travel Sketching the Erin Hill way. Quick impressions sketched in the time you have. This is for you. You’ll learn enough to take it away on your own, though many return for the term courses to advance those first skills. Sunday Workshops are designed for those new to sketching and would like to overcome the fear of ‘not having talent’. We are the people everyone comes to, to get started. A fun day in Manly and a great way to discover our unique approach to travel sketching. Everyone can learn with the Erin Hill method. Everyone goes away with a new life skill. We loan you our customised sketch kit for the day. The sketchbook is your gift from us. Do bring lunch and coffee money and a big smile.

We had a very successful Boston Sketch Workshop in October 2018. Cold and windy we decided to sink into the big chairs at The Fairmont Copley Hotel with its cosy atmosphere, log burning fires waiters in long aprons to attend to our every whim - of which we had a few. Autumn leaves and food sketching were our themes.
