Experimental Workshop with Bob Burridge

This year Robert Burridge taught a workshop in the Fall for the experienced painter, having fun with acrylics, collage, and more. Each day started with a demo and some suggested exercises to get the creative juices flowing. IMG 1119 One of the morning exercises was simple figures, working with just one color plus black and white. IMG 1123
In case you can’t read what is on the back of those figure’s jackets, it’s “Bobette.” Those who have taken a workshop with Bob before know what this means! IMG 1125

Our staff likes to have some artistic fun in the kitchen! This was the first night’s meal that we were holding for someone who was going to be arriving late and couldn’t make it in time for the dinner time. IMG 1117 This was a fun class and a great group of artists. If you missed your chance, Bob Burridge will be back again in the Spring of 2016. Sign up now before it fills up.

Everyone had fun painting and eating the wonderful meals, including this delicious Apple Pie made from local NY apples. IMG 1112 This is one of Skip’s demo paintings. IMG 1113
The tables themselves were pretty interesting! IMG 1114 Skip will be back next year, as usual, and it is not too early to start thinking of signing up for this popular workshop, as many of the people in this year’s class has already signed up for next year.

Mixed Media Paper Collage with Fran Skiles

Fran has a gentle approach to teaching; she encourages & inspires her students through her lectures and kindness. Your workshops are still the best of all the others that I have attended (Maine, Vermont, NY, CT).” – Maryfran L.

Great pace, attitude! Lack of stress, love her process of day by day to avoid ‘pre-planning.’ Lets students react to the present opportunities.

Another great workshop with Fran Skiles was enjoyed a couple of weeks ago. Here are some photos for you to enjoy a glimpse into the fun things that happened. IMG 1094
