The Chestnut Group is a nonprofit alliance of landscape artists and friends dedicated to the conservation & preservation of vanishing landscapes in Middle Tennessee. A portion of funds earned from the sale of artwork, inspired by the region’s scenic richness, is made available to organizations that share a common vision: To preserve fragile local environments and historic properties – from threatened habitats and farmland to protected natural areas.

Welcome to the Chestnut Group’s Paint Your Heart Out workshop series for 2017!  We’re excited to be able to offer a wide range of one day classes to the community and share the knowledge of painting!  These workshops are taught by our members who are gifting their time as a way to share their knowledge and also raise money for The Chestnut Group.

Please read through the full listing attached and follow the directions to sign up.  Payment is due at registration via mail to Rachel Blair.  Contact her at Rachel Blair for space availability.

Places will not be held as they do fill up quickly.  Happy painting!
