"Abstract Painting & Collage Workshop" with Robert Burridge in San Miguel de Allende
March 19-25, 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.

Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico, 10 miles South of Puerto Vallarta
January 20-27, 2018
Join us in the unique, relaxed, tropical environment of Casa de Los Artistas, in the charming fishing village of Boca de Tomatlan, 10 miles south of Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's gorgeous Pacific coast. 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.

"Loose, Impressionistic Sketching & Painting Workshop"
Bob Burridge Paints Insane on the Seine Riverboat Cruise thru France
April 13-24, 2018
*Click on images for enlargements.
They took us to the Bahamas, they took us to Cuba. Now, imagine... cruising throughout Paris on our own riverboat. We'll be sketching and capturing the history of Paris. Bob has always wanted to experience this and is very excited to paint with you as well.
Imagine also dining in French cafes, painting and sketching everything. Think Ernest Hemingway's "Moveable Feast" - that will be us! Dining and drawing memories.
No heavy plein aire equipment to lug around. Bob will demonstrate everyday, sketching, color pencil and watermedia techniques he uses in his studio. He will help you to feel lighter, see clearer and paint the way you have always wanted to paint.
Bob will also share his popular "Four Cs to make a Goof-Proof Painting," his Goof-Proof Color Wheel technique as well as his gallery and museum experiences. You paint a lot and learn a lot in a Burridge Workshop for Artists.
