This Painters' Retreat pushes you out of your safe zone and into a brand new looser, abstract direction. Day One: Materials and techniques that lay the foundation for the rest of the week. Day Two and Three: Focus on loose painting and drawing the undraped model. Each day starts with wet paint sketches plus Burridge's popular warm-up exercises. You will be producing a fresh new body of work with your own artistic voice and point of view.
Day Four and 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.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
ROBERT BURRIDGE, a noted award-winning Industrial Designer who, after 25 years in the corporate world, focused his life to painting everyday. Burridge attributes his success to his education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, his stint as an adjunct professor at Cooper Union in New York City, and in 1966, his Fluxus art performances with Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Jim McWilliams and Charlotte Moorman.
His work hangs in permanent collections of international embassies, corporate galleries and art colleges. His solo museum exhibitions received positive attention, so he was invited to exhibit his paintings at the Smithsonian Folklife Circus Arts Festival in Washington, DC.
