    Robert Burridge 5-day Workshop
    Working with Live, Undraped Models
    This Painters' Retreat pushes you out of your safe zone and into a brand new looser, abstract direction.
    9:00am - 4:00 pm each day
    Day One: Materials and techniques that lay the foundation for the rest of the week.
    Days Two & Three: Focus on loose painting and drawing the undraped model. Each day starts with wet paint sketches plus Burridge's popular warmup exercises. You will be producing a fresh new body of work with your own artistic voice and point of view.
    Days Four & Five: Creative tearing and paint splashing, starting each day with small paper collaging - Making new work and utilizing the figurative paint sketches. Plenty of lecture and demo notes, constructive critiques and personal painting time. Come prepared to paint your own stuff! Handouts provided. No photography in class, please.
