Shuptrine’s Gold Leaf Designs is hosting the 1st Annual Scenic City Paint Out.  Shuptrine's invites all regional and national artists to participate in this event - all mediums are welcome to apply.  Join them for a week in April to take workshops in oils, watercolors, and pastels.  Each participant will have the opportunity paint various views in Chattanooga, win prizes and showcase their work - all for a minimal cover fee.

For their first year,  Shuptrine's has partnered with Chattanooga's Reflection Riding Nature Center,  a non-profit organization.  The $55 application and participation fee grants participants a schedule of events, unlimited access in and around Reflection Riding for the week, and a special day at the Hunter Museum, followed by a detailed tour of the facility with Chief Curator, Ellen Simak.  

Each artist will also be able to submit one painting for review, and each additional submission will be an extra $20.  All paintings will be showcased at the end of the week, and will be available for a "wet paint" sale.
