If you have ever doodled on your notes during meetings and secretly wished for more, today is your lucky day. You get the rare opportunity to study with some of Tennessee’s most celebrated painters, and you won’t have to harvest your organs to afford it — not even that kidney you could live without. The Chestnut Group is an all-star club of plein air painters. Starting today, they offer a series of workshops that average about $50 per class. You can spend a day learning how to paint landscapes or figures, how to build compositions or transfer quick sketches to full-size works. Today’s workshops feature local favorites Lori Putnam and Haden Pickel. Other highlights include workshops from Dawn Whitelaw, Gayle Levee and Diane May.
