Bonjour - I'm Annette!
I am British (but I speak French too) and I live in Languedoc (now known as Occitanie), an area many consider to be 'the real' south of France.
In my online workshops I'll help you find ways to embrace your own creativity, and find and develop your own artistic style. Whilst learning all sorts of sketching and watercolour techniques, you'll pick up plenty of nuggets about 'la vie française' (or lafranglaise!) as well.
Why not add a taste of France to your sketchbook?!
- No flight tickets or travel insurance required
- Relax and have fun doing something JUST FOR YOU!
- Learn more about sketching and using watercolour
- Get feedback & ask questions at any stage of the course
- Connect with a friendly community of aspiring artists in a private Facebook group
- Step into living life in a fascinating corner of France
Glass of rosé anyone?!

Buying as a gift?
If someone is lucky enough to have you treating them to a virtual sketching holiday, 'c'est formidable'!
If you are shopping in a hurry, the quickest way to proceed is to purchase a virtual holiday voucher online where you can add your own personal message.
However, I would be delighted to post them a gift card too, so please indicate that on the order form and I'll pop one in the post.
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.

Thank you again for making my holiday so interesting.

Great sketching workshop in Capestang – learned some interesting techniques for future projects. Thank you, Annette! 😃
Patricia - October 2021
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.
Celia B. - February 2020
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.
Etchr Mini-Workshop - November 2021
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.
Carole L. - March 2023
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.
Jane H. - October 2019
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.
Brian S. - September 2022
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.
Vanessa C. - July 2019
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.
Paul W. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - March 2020
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!
Kate D. - May 2022
Annette is an amazing teacher – very inspiring and encouraging. Really enjoyed her France Workshop Weekend and learnt a lot.
Mags A. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - September 2022
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.
Anne S. - April 2019
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!
Marlin C.A. - Caunes-Minervois, June 2019
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!
Patricia - October 2022
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful morning. It was so enjoyable and therapeutic!
Pam H. - August 2018
Overwhelmed with the skills I learned and the results I achieved as a novice artist. Highly recommended.
Sarah H. - May 2022
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!!
Lina R. - March 2020
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
Honor M - Lagrasse, November 2017
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! 💕💕💕

Finding Your Personal Sketching Style
My aim is not to teach you a particular style, a particular method or even to paint one particular view or object.
My main aim is to give you the techniques and inspiration, and to help you feel more relaxed and confident in your creative journey, to help you grow as an artist towards ... wherever goal YOU want that to be - keeping the colours bright and the mood light!
I'm really looking forward to to helping you on your journey!
