I really enjoyed the workshop with Annette! She’s so friendly and she knows how make you feel confident 🙂 (even if you never sketched before…)
It was a lovely day!! I look forward to the next one!
Thank You Annette!!
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful morning. It was so enjoyable and therapeutic!
I just love my learning experiences with Annette, both virtually on zoom and her daily sketching prompts on facebook. She demonstrates techniques and explains how to best work with various media, including watercolour paints and crayons. For anyone who has an interest in improving their skills, or would like to embark on a new hobby, I would thoroughly recommend that you follow Annette’s wonderful examples and, when possible join a zoom class.
I went with very low expectations but a secret hope that I might actually be able to do this – Annette said everyone can draw – and she is right!! I did and I can!! Thank you Annette for giving me the confidence to just go for it . We were so lucky that we had a beautiful sunny day (and a fab lunch sitting outside ) Lagrasse is a fabulous location to sketch too.. Annette makes you feel totally at ease and it was lovely to go with 3 other fun lovely women too ! Looking forward to more classes please soon
Thanks so much for yesterday, it was very enlightening, and fun.
The tips are great and I’ll refer to them as I hopefully continue my sketching. I look forward to doing another session with you.
I had a great week learning to sketch with Annette. As an absolute beginner I was a little uncertain and lacking confidence but Annette was super helpful and as the week went on I started to produce some art that I was actually quite proud of. The other students were great company and the whole week was thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Thank you for a great class today, despite the weather! We are looking forward to practicing our sketching.
Annette is an ideal teacher for both beginners, and experienced sketchers and water-colourists. She’s patient, encouraging and suggests new techniques to try. She helps you discover your own style which is so refreshing ! I learnt so much and had so much fun. Thank you Annette for a brilliant sketching holiday and for sharing your love of Languedoc with us. I will be back next year all the way from Sydney Australia.
Nous avons passé un week-end formidable avec Annette à Bizes Minervois les 17 et 18 octobre : Annette nous a guidées avec fermeté et une grande gentillesse pour des exercices très variés et nous a fait découvrir des techniques nouvelles. merci beaucoup Annettte et à la prochaine fois !
I really loved the tutorial. Your explanations are just so clear.
Fabulous on line art tutorials
Just completed my first module with Annette Morris Art on line. Annette is fabulous tutor, with a lovely relaxed style and I always enjoy sketching along with her. Very highly recommended ….I will certainly be doing more !
I had always hoped to join one of Annette’s wonderful sketching classes when I was living in France but ran out of time! During the lockdown, I decided to try one of her online classes and chose Sketching for Absolute Beginners. It was such an enjoyable and satisfying experience as I never imagined I would be able to draw or paint anything! You take the workshop at your own pace and Annette is there at the end of each module to answer any virtual questions that you have. There’s a great introduction to the materials you need and then you follow different modules which are so well paced and thought out. Annette takes you step by step through the process from your first doodle to planning the page, gaining perspective, then sketching in pencil, ink and water colour crayons and finally working with water colour paints. There are lots of clever tips and interesting techniques to learn, I was so pleased with my progress over such a short time – it’s such a wonderful journey and really good value. Since then, I have joined a couple of her Zoom classes and definitely plan more online workshops and hopefully I will get to a live one too!
I had the pleasure of attending Annette’s workshop at Montouliers in September. It was a great spot for a workshop and Annette was such a generous and inspiring teacher. I learnt lots of new things and quick tips and tricks from her to use in my sketches. I wish I lived closer so I could go to more of her classes!
Thank you Annette for such a fascinating and mindful morning in Narbonne, I feel I now understand so much more. I really enjoyed the joyful yet studious atmosphere you generated.
Fantastic day Annette. I feel inspired to sketch at will again.
I spent the weekend sketching with Annette and a lovely group of women. I’m an absolute beginner and Annette was so helpful, a great teacher and a very talented artist who has inspired me to sketch and water colour and its now my new favourite thing to do. ☺️
We spend 2 wonderful days urban sketching in Montpellier ( a week ago) with Annette and a small crew of like minded artists. I don’t know any one more passionate about what they do than Annette. She inspires and will give you confidence, with a good measure of guidance to start or build on your art journey.
On that note, Urban sketching is a way to introduce you to new places, discover new foods and make new friends. And unbeknown to you, you will inadvertently discover that you bring happiness to those around you. People will peer at your work and make comments (sometimes) , others will want to take a photo of you sketching .. and I think you become an inspiration to others who would like to do the same.
So do yourself a favour .. get off the merry go round and indulge in the pleasure of Urban sketching …
I enjoyed my holiday near Beziers very much.
Annette is an excellent teacher, supportive and attentive to each student’s needs.
I produced better pictures than I had anticipated but my holiday was absolutely crucial for me in deciding the direction in which I wanted my art to go. I shall always be very grateful to Annette for that.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on the sketching weekend in Paris with Annette Morris. Annette led a well thought out and interesting course. I had not sketched in a long time and was a relative beginner, but I grew and was challenged in a good way during this weekend. The group size was perfect and Annette helped create a cohesive group spirit and a supportive atmosphere. This sketching weekend was a marvelous way to see a city with fresh eyes! Meeting lovely people with the same interests in art was an added bonus.
If you look for a day that can make you completely happy, then join a sketching class with Annette Morris – it was so much fun, also lovely relaxing, surrounded by nice people, it was just great! It was like playing golf, only much better! Thank you so much and hopefully I can join another class soon again!
I recently took part in a Sketching morning with Annette and 3 other ladies. I am a beginner which didn’t matter amongst the more experienced. Advice and tips were given throughout the session which was very relaxing and fun. I’d recommend this to everyone. thank you Annette I’ll see you in Puisserguier.
I commissioned Annette to paint portraits of my two dogs as a present for my husband – I was honestly overwhelmed at how she captured their personalities – totally over the moon and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her art and talent !
My husband and I had already bought four of Annette’s sketches before we attended an exhibition of hers in last January. We were completely blown away by all her work and bought two more. If we had more wall space available we would have loved to buy more and had real trouble deciding which two would make the cut! They bring us a great deal of pleasure and we are so glad that we were able to pick them up before the current lockdown.
Many thanks to Annette for a great introduction to sketching last Saturday in Montpellier. A day packed with information, advice and encouragement. A much needed boost to my confidence. Can’t wait for the next one! 💕💕💕
Annette’s guided tutorials are easy to follow. Her calming, instructive voice leads you through each step clearly and result in a sketch of your very own making. Enjoy
Stunning!!!! The picture arrived safely and is lovely !. Thanks ever so much, Iain
Overwhelmed with the skills I learned and the results I achieved as a novice artist. Highly recommended.
It was fantastic, I love her style. I was able to follow along (barely), and got a reasonable sketch at the end.
Having admired Annette’s work for sometime, I approached her to commission a special present for my husband recently. I had a specific scene in mind and WOW!!!! We honestly could not be happier with the finished painting – Annette brought the scene to life and it will become part of our home, a truly original gift to be cherised. Thank you from us both, you are wonderfully talented
You don’t have to be an artist or any good at drawing to have a fabulous time with Annette. First time sketching and the time flew past. And our sketches actually look like something!!! Great time and learned so much.
I had a wonderful week sketching with Annette last year. As a newcomer to sketching she gave me huge confidence and invaluable help and encouragement when needed. I know the others would agree with me. I have become a very active sketcher thanks to Annette and have wonderful memories of long lunches, lots of laughs and of exploring her corner of France.
Still buzzing nearly a week after Springtime in Paris with Annette. Excelled all my expectations and if you want Paris to get into your soul, and not just be a tourist, this is the way to do it! It’s exciting, exhilarating and enlightening and I recommend a good pair of comfy shoes along with a good quality sketchbook. Annette is not just an accomplished artist, she is an encouraging teacher who also happens to be the best tour guide, bus planner, café connoisseur, reserver of restaurants and much much more! You will never look at Paris in the same way and as a bonus you will meet a special band of brothers. You’ll come home with an extraordinary sketchbook souvenir.
I had a great sketching weekend in Quarante! Annette is a wonderful and inspiring teacher. Thank you Anette 😀
Thanks Annette another lovely tutorial, really enjoying how you break down urban scenes and looking forward to going out and trying en plein air once the weather improves here in Yorkshire!
Annette is a wonderful artist and teacher! I am a beginner watercolorist, although I do have some experience with the medium. Annette explains and demonstrates things very well. Added to a lovely, upbeat personality, her demos and workshops are great! What I have enjoyed the most is her selection of locations in France as references. I love traveling around the Mediterranean, particularly Italy, and want to learn to capture my travels (in person and my photos) in a watercolor sketchbook. I will be doing her master class in this series next!
The instructor did an excellent job explaining her process and my initial drawing proportions were better than usual for me. I will try her techniques on other drawings.
Just enjoyed an energetic weekend in Paris sketching with Annette Morris Art . We covered many of the best known landmarks, and managed very brief, longer, and full-length sketching sessions. It was wonderful to concentrate on drawing, without having to think about route-finding, where to eat, and locations for coffee and recuperation, because Annette had that all planned. it was fun to work with like-minded people, and as usual, we all looked at the same thing but saw something completely different. I have ended up with some memorable sketches in themselves, some sketch material to develop, and enough photographs to take me through the winter! I genuinely recommend any session Annette runs as manager: I look forward to another one myself. Brian Stone.
Thank you for sharing your talent and encouraging others. Looking forward to more classes next year.
Many, many thanks for a most delightful morning which, even in the freezing grey-sky day, was positive, fun, and very rewarding. You are, indeed, a wonderful and remarkable teacher!!!
We are both so delighted with our time spent with you. We so appreciate your kindness, patience and encouragement! You are awesome!
This was a great course. Thank you, Annette, for your thoughts and insights.
I enjoyed it very much. I am familiar with Annette’s teaching style and so I was able to sketch along, but I think that would be possible if not familiar. The follow-up video allows another attempt at the learner’s pace and also further practice.
This is my second Annette Morris session and I am infatuated now with bright, deep colors. Excellent session.
I’m a novice, and have been to some of Annette’s classes recently. She’s a kind and patient teacher. If you want to try sketching in a supportive space, I can recommend Annette’s sessions.
The most patient, encouraging and talented teacher there is. A micro grain of creativity will be rooted out by Annette and hey presto…. a new world of art and fun.
Enjoyed a great 4 day sketching holiday with Annette in Quarante, France. Excellent tuition with useful exercises and tips. I think I became a little more colourful!! Annette is very organised, inspirational and enthusiastic. The bed and breakfast accommodation with Annika was “palatial” but so relaxed and comfortable that it was like staying with an old friend. I would recommend this holiday to all sketchers. Kaye
Annette is a wonderful teacher and has a great style. She is relaxed, fun to be with, and very helpful. I highly recommend her!
Having recently completed the Watercolour Sketching for beginners course I can highly recommend both the course and the excellent teacher, Annette. Being a complete novice I was amazed and thrilled by the many skills I learnt and the wonderful paintings I was able to produce. Annette is a friendly and enthusiastic person and a brilliant teacher.
I commissioned Annette to make a watercolour painting of our house in Cruzy as a surprise birthday present for my husband. She delivered and more! It’s a beautiful painting and catches the feel of the house perfectly – Thank you SO much Annette! You can post a picture of it if you like and for those who would like to rent it for a week or two can visit us on www.villainlanguedoc.com or fb page Villa in Languedoc
Annette is a great teacher since she explains everything clearly and simply. She imparts a sense of fun and helps even beginners feel self-confident. I have done an online class, as well as an in-person class on location, with Annette. Both were excellent!
My wife Heather started zoom sketching classes with Annette Morris of Sketch Languedoc during the lockdowns in the UK. She was thrilled with how quickly Annette’s teaching yielded results. However, nothing is as much fun as being outside in the fresh air in a beautiful Covid safe setting. If you are in the area, don’t miss her brilliant workshops or sign up for her Zoom classes online.
I’ve been benefiting from Annette’s online watercolour sketching tutorials. They are enormous fun and structured to include a variety of topics and techniques for the absolute beginner. This is something I’ve wanted to try for years and Annette’s clever teaching has given me the confidence and the skills to have a go. Highly recommended.
Have just finished a workshop tour with the amazingly patient, creative and inspiring Annette Morris – couldn’t have asked ffor a better teacher. Annette was so encouraging & gave generously of her time, ideas & those ‘secret’ sketching spots that were so varied & inspiring. Fab holiday!
Thanks for a lovely couple of days sketching. I really appreciated exploring different styles with you, it’s helped to open my eyes to other ways of sketching and rejuvenated my delight.
Thanks also for the care and consideration you put into planning our adventures, we greatly appreciate the effort and had a great time.
Just home after an amazing sketching trip to Paris with Annette and a fabulous group. Can’t recommend this trip highly enough! It was a brilliant experience seeing Paris as a sketcher. Lots of opportunities for quick sketches, photographs, interspersed with sightseeing whilst walking and bus trips but plenty of stops for refreshments at some fantastic cafés and restaurants. Annette made the weekend such a special experience with attention to detail, making sure we had a memorable trip seeing lots of what Paris has to offer and have many lovely memories – and sketches- of a great weekend. Looking forward to adding to my sketchbook now that I’m home. Thank you so much Annette 🧑🎨🇫🇷
We are delighted with the result You have perfectly captured the scenes both in colour and atmosphere in the way that we were looking for.
Annette is a terrific teacher and talented artist. HIghly recommend taking a class with her!!!!!!
I’ve been meaning to say thank you; I don’t think I would have had the courage to make this painting (Keifer’s Dream) if we’d not done our splashing session together.
Thank you again for making my holiday so interesting.
Thanks so much for the demo Annette, it was fun to work alongside you! Lots of great advice and inspiration from you throughout. Very happy with the results and an added bonus is the replay. All great stuff!
Today I received my painting, I am absolutely delighted with it, you are so talented, I will treasure it. Thank you so much.😁
Great sketching workshop in Capestang – learned some interesting techniques for future projects. Thank you, Annette! 😃
What a superb tutorial!
I found Annette’s method of teaching very easy to follow .
I was really happy with my finished sketch and look forward to the next one.
I’ve already done some of you Etchr Studio classes and learning so much from you. Your use of the color pencils during the first wash is absolute magic!
This was a great workshop by one of my favourite watercolour artists. The pace was fast (although I do appreciate the time restraints) and I was able to follow along for most of it and then complete any finishing touches afterwards. The PDF was a welcome addition as a step by step guide too.
I attended a Paris weekend earlier this year with Annette Morris Art. It was fantastic, we really explored Paris and captured lots of memories in our sketching. Highly recommended!
I asked Annette to paint a picture of my furry friend, Miette. The process was very simple. I sent her a few photos, but she also wanted to know a bit about my cat to get a feel for her, which came across in the painting. What she produced was truly delightful, and I have enjoyed showing it to friends.
I thoroughly recommend Annette’s informal courses. Great for beginners like me. I took art at school but that’s where it stopped. Thanks for the encouragement Annette
Annette is an amazing teacher – very inspiring and encouraging. Really enjoyed her France Workshop Weekend and learnt a lot.
I spent a wonderful day in Montpellier at one of Annette’s beginner workshops. I’m amazed at how much I learned in just a few hours. Annette is a great teacher and really made me feel comfortable – I have gone from thinking “I just can’t draw”, to “I CAN, and it’s fun!”. Annette gave so many useful little tips along the way, which made all the difference to my feeling capable and wanting to continue sketching. Added bonus: I now have a lovely souvenir of the beautiful Montpellier architecture!
A huge thank you for your painting! It looks amazing. We now have plenty of places to hang it, so it’s a great gift!!
Sketching tutorials on line
Have done two of the modules. Really easy to follow, great pace – so easy to keep up with the sketching and painting. You will be amazed at what you produce. Would recommend to all. I will definitely be doing some more.
I greatly enjoyed the relaxed workshop in Carcassonne with Annette this morning. I learned a lot and I’m re-inspired to do some sketching. Thank you!
Thanks so much for the demo Annette, it was fun to work alongside you! Lots of great advice and inspiration from you throughout. Very happy with the results and an added bonus is the replay. All great stuff!
Thank you for stretching us, Annette. A completely new style (Faux Stained Glass) for me. What a wonderful day.
Thank you very much for the class on Tuesday. We were very impressed with the amount of things we were able to learn from you in such a short time.
I just thought I would write to tell you how much I enjoyed that wonderful few days with Ian in Montpellier. I need hardly tell you that I have been on many art courses and holidays, and I have no hesitation in saying that that was clearly one of the most enjoyable. Let me pay particular tribute to the way in which you quietly and discreetly organised everything. I don’t remember any single thing going wrong. You may well be a born artist: you’re certainly a born manager.
