Creative tearing and paint splashing starts off this all new “Loosen Up Workshop.” Think Matisse, Rauschenburg, Diebenkorn, Motherwell… and you! Using your own ragbag of cool stuff to glue and assemble, plus acrylic paint and your off-center imagination. And, imagine painting with no brushes! This wild workshop is about jumping off the cliff and creating artwork no one has ever seen you do. Finger painting, stick painting and collage – plus anything goes from there. Also you will learn how to begin a new fresh body of work with your own artistic voice and point of view. Think “artist retreat,” producing a body of work, a series of paintings or your conceptual solo show.
Robert Burridge, along with his famous daily handouts, demos and lectures, helps and guides you to paint the way you have always wanted to paint. Daily, you can expect warmup paint sketching, brief painting and lecture demos, constructive critiques and plenty of time to work on personal projects. Burridge’s newest color wheel technique is also demonstrated. Come prepared to paint your stuff!
“Fun, challenging, energizing, & exciting. Bob is an inspiring and generous teacher.”
