East Tennessee “Plein Air” PAINT OUT!

2018-06-19T12:13:47+00:00

 

EAST TENNESSEE PLEIN AIR PAINT OUT

Come and paint the beauty that is East Tennessee


A cradle of creativity, Tennessee is known for its contributions to arts, science, technology, and social justice.  Words and music have interpreted our rich culture: Sequoyah’s writing system, books by remarkable authors and the music by memorable singers/musicians.

 

WHAT IS “PLEIN AIR”?

 It is a French term for painting in the outdoors.  Monet, van Gogh and Renoir are examples

of famous painters who painted “en plein air”.
