Here you will find details of sketching events, workshops and holidays in 'the real' south of France.

These events take place in the largest vineyard in the world where life is relaxed, fun and friendly.  All levels of artistic experience are catered for, working through essentials for beginners to more challenging techniques to help you find your unique personal style.

Whatever your level of artistic experience, sketching is for everyone and anyone can sketch!
