Whatever reasons tempt you to book this holiday, with the ErinHill sketching system you will achieve far more than you anticipate, returning home relaxed, re-energised, and with a sketchbook full of wonderful memories!

See the world through fresh eyes
ErinHill Sketching is a system to help you capture a moment in time, your way.  Step-by-step you’ll be guided you through the fun process of learning how to really ‘see’, and there’ll be plenty of laughter along the way as you do! A photo takes less than a second, but the few minutes you spend observing details and bringing your sketch to life will create a memory that lasts for years.

Travelling light
ErinHill Sketching uses a carefully designed kit ideal for travel sketching. Carrying just a few lightweight items you can sketch anytime and anywhere. For this sketch holiday all materials will be provided, unless you already have your own. Please click here for a full list of items required. You will need your own A5 spiral-bound sketchbook (110gsm) which can be purchased on arrival.

Leave your fears at the door!
When you travel sketch there’s no such thing as a mistake, and you’ll be amazed at what you can do.  You’ll learn many new techniques, and usually find you are creating fabulous sketches within about an hour.  Click here to see some of the reviews on Facebook!

Discover ‘the real south of France’
Languedoc really is France’s best kept secret.  From our village we are surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see; there are fabulous historic cities, beautiful beaches, stunning mountain trails and of course the world-famous Canal du Midi. Sketching inspiration really is waiting around every corner.  Using your sketchbook you can record snapshots of this fabulous area in just a few strokes of colour.

We’ll be sketching in the morning until just after lunch, so there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the local area … and of course discover more about the food and wine …

Treat yourself to a creative journey in the fabulous South of France & learn how to develop your own natural ability to interpret what you see!
