Casa de Los Artistas and its villas are built with the jungle and mountains behind them, with the river and ocean at their front door. Here inspirartion abounds, with tropical flora, fuana, and all the beauty the sun, surf and sea have to offer. A very special and safe retreat space.
Daily you can expect warmup paint sketching, brief painting and lecture demos, as well as indiviual and group critiques during this all inclusive week long workshop. Bob shares his unique techniques and years of painting experience in his warm and personal teaching style. This workshop will emphasize loose, expressive techniques, not necessarily photo realism techniques - of course, your style is up to you and Bob will help you with yours. There will be time spent in the Casa's magnificent open air studio with dweeping views of the ocean, river and quaint village of Boca de Tomatlan, as well as time spent painting on location in plein air.

"Abstract Painting & Collage Workshop" with Robert Burridge in San Miguel de Allende
March 19 - 26, 2017
This painter's workshop emphasizes loose, expressive painting techniques while on location in the richly visual environs of Mexico. Daily morning demos, lots of painting time in the studio and on location. Everything you ever wanted to know will be covered or demonstrated! Loose, splashing colors, water soluble pencils, paper towels and finger will be our tools for creating brand new works of art not typically created in plein air workshops.
San Miguel is the best known artists' colony in Mexico with many Americans and Europeans living and studying there. It's a fun town - colorful, musical and full of painting opportunities. We will be housed in a lovely hotel with heated pool and tropical shrubbery, close to the art institute and a few blocks from the catheral and town square.
We don't have a day-by-day itinerary because we want to fit in market days and any event that may be happening during the week. You can count on painting several hours per day and Bob will provide much guidance and instruction. All levels welcome.
