Sketching Art Classes

This is a unique system designed to teach you how to sketch. These are not drawing, illustration or painting classes. A sketch is that simple impression, as you see it in the moment, no matter how wibbly wobbly No right or wrong. We have a way of leading you step by step through a program which will have you sketching in your first lesson. No previous experience needed. Lots of laughs and lots of fun.

Tony will run our 8 week classes on either Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. We begin classes with our ‘How to see’ guidance. Each week, you’ll be learning the core skills of sketching to give you the confidence to sketch wherever you are.

The foundation classes of Erin Hill Studio — a unique system designed to teach anyone how to sketch in a very short time. Step by step you learn to observe and sketch the world around you in whatever time you have available. That quick impression anywhere, anytime and anything.

There are 3 parts to your weekly class. We begin in the Studio with warm up sketching. Out on location sketching our subject of the week. Complete the class in a different cafe each week.

We work through a program over the term to give you the core skills needed. Because no term is ever the same, we continue to extend your skills in two mediums and techniques. This is perfect for the long term regular sketcher who wants to take their sketching to the limit and beyond.

Our Sketching Courses run for 3 hours over 8 weeks with the accent on observation fun and involvement. Its an exciting venture for me as it follows my passion for sketching  and teaching — the Erin Hill way.
