It seemed like a week-long party during Robert Burridge’s Abstract Acrylic Painting and Collage workshop.
” Bob makes it fun – very informative, his color wheel made the process easier to understand. I’m very excited to continue and experience Bob’s class!” – Diane D.
They also worked hard in the studio. Bob started each morning with a short lecture and demo, then assigned a warm up exercise to the students to get them going. After that everyone could work in the their own direction, if they chose.
Chef Mark got to step out of his chef-ing duds and into his painting gear for a little side trip into abstract painting. He enjoyed working in a series themed around cellos (he has recently taken it once again) and other musical instruments.
Then there was the Bob and Mark after-dinner entertainment show! Both Bob and Mark come from a tradition of entertainment and magic and they traded off with each other presenting fun close-up magic tricks, to the delight of the audience!
This is one of Bob’s famous floral demos. More of Bob’s morning demos.
Mark with his vintage card trick duck! The duck was his fathers, who was a comedian, vaudeville entertainer, and musician. More rope tricks by Bob!
At the final night’s dinner, the student’s presented Bob with a card and gift. It was sad to see such a happy group leave at the end of the week, but Bob will be back again next year in June. Before Bob left, he and Mark had their heads together quietly scheming about an even more elaborate after-dinner show for next year! Don’t miss it, sign up now.
