Burridge’s popular “Loosen Up” workshops nurture individual success and personal enrichment with a big emphasis on daily painting projects at your own pace. It is stress-free, but be warned; you could end up with too much enthusiasm for painting. This Burridge flagship workshop offers a variety of painting subjects for everyone. Designed for the professional painter who is stuck in a style as well as for the novice who wants to conquer their fear of painting. Starting each day with multiple, small “warm-up painting exercises” and up to larger-format paintings, Burridge’s positive approach towards the act of painting will inspire you to loosen up, have fun again and paint more! Expect an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where you will create many works of art using spontaneity for maximum effect. This workshop has become a must for artists who want the confidence and permission to paint the way they have always wanted to paint. Students will take home preprinted notes of useful and need-to-know information. Burridge’s newest color combination technique is also demonstrated. A positive attitude is a must!

Objectives
• “Loosen Up”

Artist info:

In 1985 Robert Burridge turned his passion into his second career. He retired from industrial design and became a full time, contemporary fine art painter, moved to California's Central Coast and prepared to paint the rest of his life. Today, besides painting, he is an invited juror for international art shows, a college and national painting workshop instructor, and teaches a fine art mentor program in central France. Recently selected as the Honorary President of the International Society of Acrylic Painters, he holds a signature membership with them and with the Philadelphia Watercolor Society.

His original paintings can be seen in six international galleries, on Starbucks Coffee mugs, Pearl Vodka bottles, eight tapestries and on fine art edition prints in upscale retail stores and cruise ships.

His work has received lifetime honors, including The Franklin Mint Award and recently the Philadelphia Watercolor Society's prestigious Crest Medal Award for achievement in the arts previously awarded to Pablo Picasso, John Singer Sargent and Georgia O'Keefe.

It is said, "Your heart doesn't know how old you are." For me, it's true. Painting everyday in my small studio overlooking the Pacific Ocean, I feel like a kid again playing with color, design, paint and canvas, which reminds me of the saying, "It's never too late to be what you always should have been." Follow your bliss!

workshop schedule is 9AM - 4PM

Studio events are a 2-4 day immersion in mixed-media art and journaling. These creative weekends are filled with the process driven exploration of creative mediums and applications in an intimate, supportive environment, challenging students to expand their creativity through the exploration of new artistic methods and mediums.
