You don’t need to know (how to paint)! Just bring a sketchpad and enjoy the process of looking at Tybee in a different way. Draw a tree, draw a cottage, draw anything you want. Or take photos, or watch others do what they do! That’s the joy of Plein Air!”
— Beth Hegeman via Facebook

In March of 2016, a newly formed group under the Tybee Arts Association, planned and scheduled their very first "PaintOut" event.  This is a group of dedicated, fun-loving and enthusiastic artists.  PaintOuts will always be the first and third Wednesday of the month.  Guests are always welcome!

location:

Site location will be posted on the CALENDAR for each PaintOut.  Location changes from week to week.

important information:

  • Parking is FREE when parking at the TAA building but be prepared to pay for parking elsewhere on the island.

  • Bring layers of clothing for the cool morning air but be ready for it to warm up as the day progresses. 

  • Bring LOTS of WATER and SUNSCREEN. There is some shade but not everywhere

  • Bring a HAT to keep off glare which distorts colors & to protect you from the sun

  • Bring BUG SPRAY  

  • Reference photos are handy so bring a camera if you want to bring them

  • Bring plastic bag for trash and take it when you leave

WHEN APPLICABLE:

  • IF SOMEONE WANTS TO BUY A PAINTING OFF YOUR EASEL AT THE BEACH, YOU MUST NOT SELL ON THE BEACH. GIVE THE BUYER YOUR CARD AND DO BUSINESS ELSEWHERE. 

  • DO NOT SET UP ON SIDEWALKS

  • DO NOT CAUSE ANY DISRUPTIONS IN PARKS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ENJOYING THE PARK

Again, the PaintOuts will always be the first and the third Wednesdays of the month. Bring a friend! You could sketch/paint/photograph each other. Now there's a cool idea! See you soon!

*PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF:

1. YOU NO LONGER WISH TO BE ON OUR EMAIL LIST;

2. YOU PLAN TO COME AS IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!

3.  YOU HAVE IDEAS ON LOCATIONS.

4.  YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO BE ON OUR LIST.
