Erin Hill’s Sketch New England Sept 2017

Sketch in Boston Cape Cod and New York
with Erin Hill in 2017

Spend 15 days in September 2017 experiencing the diverse cultural excitement of Boston and New York city and the breathtaking Autumn colours of New England staying in historic hotels and learn to sketch with artist Erin Hill.

This is a tour for people who want to learn to travel sketch or to improve their budding skills. No prior sketching or art experience is necessary. Erin teaches you everything you need to know. See Erin’s art here.

Anyone who can hold a pen can come along on this tour and have an extraordinary time!

This tour is also for  history & architecture lovers, shoppers, wanderers and those who are looking for a trip with a caring and entertaining tour director and  15 days full of wonder, beauty, fun learning and warm company. Partners and non-sketchers are welcome on this tour, there is so much to entertain you daily.


Each day we have a sketching demo from Erin, learning different techniques and themes, then we sketch with the group learning from and helping each other with Erin and her assistant guiding us throughout this time. Our afternoons are free to explore or to practise what we have learned that day while sketching different scenes and objects.
You will be amazed at what you can produce and how much you will improve in the two weeks with Erin.
Everyone will have different levels of ability which makes no difference to the group dynamic and is no way intimidating for New Sketchers. Many of our clients come at least once every year on Erin’s Sketching Holidays as her tours are very addictive and just so much fun.

September 17 – 21   Our tour starts with 4 nights in Boston staying in historic Beacon Hill – the area first settled by the Puritans  in 1628.

Learn to sketch anything in Boston from an apple in a street market to Boston’s Georgian and Empire style architecture, cobbled streets and ultra modern sleek designs (like MIT university). Home to over 100 universities Boston has just so much life to observe and record on paper.
You will love this cultured city.
