Loosen Up with Aquamedia Painting in the Abacos
Bahamas, January 19-26, 2013
This workshop will emphasize techniques, not necessarily photo realism techniques; of course, your style is up to you and Bob will help you with it. It is a worry-free, day-by-day activities account and exotic history of where we will be painting. Bob is planning to focus on painting a series, based on specific color themes. We will not try to capture everything we see, knowing we'll be overwhelmed by the awesomeness of this trip! Your painting goals are also important.
Hope Town Harbor Lodge will provide the island accommodations and meals. In addition to painting on the beach, an indoor painting location in the lodge's lovely lounge and/or poolside is an option. One day we will travel by water taxi to another island to paint and enjoy island cuisine mid day. There will be plenty of time to paint on your own and explore the English heritage of the cay or nearby cays with friends and family. Bob will paint in acrylic and you may choose your waterbased painting medium. All levels welcome.
Class will be held Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Bob and his wife Kate will offer afternoon beachside art marketing classes - "Marketing for the Artist who Know Everything."
Elbow Cay and surrounding areas are filled with activities for those not participating in the art classes.

Paint with Bob is San Miguel de Allende
March 17-23, 2013
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. Easter is March 31 so we will be experiencing the magic of the beginning of Easter week in Mexico. We will be house in a lovely hotel with heated pool and ytropical 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.

Loose Interpretive Plein Air Painting in Lahaina, Maui
October 7-11, 2013
Sink your toes into the sand (or surf) and paint with Bob. Produce a body of work, a series of paintings or your own conceptual solo show with your artistic voice and point of view. Bob will emphasize and demonstrate loose, expressive techniques in acrylic and paint primarily abstract. You can paint as abstractly as you wish, in any waterbased medium, and even use collage; this is your artistic, educational retreat. Bob will assist you with your style and workshop goals.
Daily, you can expect warmup paint sketching, brief painting and lecture demos, constructive critiques and plenty of time to work on personal projects. Come prepared to paint your stuff! All levels welcome.
We will meet daily on location and paint the beautiful places in and around Lahaina, Hawaii on the Island of Maui. We have many selected locations and will have an itinerary to share with you Monday morning of the workshop. You will receive specific instructions on our first meeting four to six weeks before the workshop begins.
