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!
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Burridge attributes his success to his education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, his stint as an adjunct professor at Cooper Union School for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City and, in 1966, his Fluxus art performances with Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Jim McWilliams and Charlotte Moorman.
Burridge is much sought after as juror, speaker and workshop instructor, and is a featured artist-mentor for Master Workshops in France, Italy, Mexico, Bahamas, Guatemala and Cuba.
Burridge was commissioned to create 12 large abstract canvas paintings for the Hollywood movie Dean Quixote, a feature film produced by Victor Simpkins. Burridge’s Coffee Cup painting series was reproduced by Starbucks Coffee Company on thousands of cups as well as framed art prints. Williams-Sonoma stores carried his popular fruit and vegetable prints. His commercial successes now include eight paintings woven into large tapestries selling at national design centers.
Currently, his popular work hangs in the permanent collections of international embassies, corporate galleries, art colleges as well as television and entertainment personalities. His previous solo museum exhibitions received positive attention, so he was invited to exhibit his circus paintings at the Smithsonian Folklife Circus Arts Festival in Washington, DC.
