Instructor's Website:

In this new retreat style workshop with Robert Burridge, you’ll be pushed out of your safe zone and into a brand new looser, abstract direction. On day one, Robert will cover materials and techniques that will lay the foundation for the rest of the week. For the second and third days, you will focus on loose painting and drawing the undraped model. Each day will begin with wet paint sketches plus Robert’s popular warm up exercises. Over the course of the workshop, you will be producing a fresh new body of work with your own artistic voice and point of view.

On the final two days of the workshop, you’ll start each day with small paper collage, creatively tearing and splashing paint – making new work utilizing the figurative paint sketches. Throughout the workshop, Robert will provide plenty of lecture and demo notes, constructive critiques, as well as personal painting time. Come prepared to paint your own work, handouts will be provided. Robert also asks for no photography in class.
