Class description: Never painted outside, or new to painting outside? No problem! Come join other newcomers to take the courageous leap into painting in the great outdoors! Welcome to Plein Air 101, where we will spend a fun day of learning all about plein air painting. We will cover everything from a short history of the movement, to the ins and outs of gear & how to set up to paint outside, as well as how to mix colors from a limited palette, including all of those Tennessee greens. We will learn to ‘see’ outside as artists: how to identify and compose a scene, and break down the painting process into steps to create your first plein air painting. You will leave with a reference packet full of tips, tools, book titles, and artists to study further, as well as the confidence, and enthusiasm to create your next plein air piece!

Supply List: Everything you need to actually paint: easels, paint, canvases, brushes, gamsol, will be provided; however, if you have/would like to bring your own supplies, you are welcome to do so!
You will need to bring: clothes you don’t mind getting paint on, or apron, sun hat, sunscreen, bug spray, outdoor chair if needed, paper towels (Viva original preferred), plastic grocery bag for a trash bag, notebook, pen/pencil, outdoor or French easel if you have one, if not – no worries, we will provide!
PLEASE BRING YOUR LUNCH and a water bottle to stay hydrated! There is a refrigerator on site if needed. *Again all painting supplies will be provided; however, if you already have or would like to bring your own supplies, I will email you once registered with a more detailed recommended supply list.

Brigitte Hubbard Bio: Brigitte Borchardt Hubbard received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art and English from Vanderbilt University in 1992, and a Masters Degree in Art History in 1995, also from Vanderbilt University. Brigitte has always been inspired by the beauty of nature, the play of light, the fun of color, and the landscapes of the South and the Rocky Mountain West. She strives to convey the feeling of a moment by capturing the light through rich color and impressionistic brushstrokes.  Brigitte lives with her family in Nashville, Tennessee, where she paints both en plein air and in the studio, and loves to share the endlessly fascinating world of painting with others. Brigitte is an encouraging teacher, has participated in numerous art shows, is a longtime board member of the Chestnut Group, plein air painters for the land, and is humbled and thrilled that her work hangs in private collections across the US.
