Paint with Bob in the Bahamas!
Abstract Acrylic Painting Workshop
February 17-24, 2023

The harmony of painting together and celebrating a long friendship between Bob and Denny Robertson of Dillman’s will be the new way to laugh – with the exclamation mark of both of these guys turning 80 years old in 2023!

What to Expect: During this workshop week, Bob will customize instruction to the beautiful lifestyle and backdrop of the Bahamas. Instruction includes painting what you see, as well as common, everyday objects, local flora and the tropical Bahamian landscape – all with an eye toward abstraction.

Bob said to Denny just recently… “We’re still standing and painting!” That’s 160 years of accumulated wisdom, passion and joy for creating art. They love to talk and paint; and boy, does Denny have the memories – and nobody believes all of Bob’s stories!

But wait! There’s more – Kate, Bob’s wife and manager, will offer informal art marketing sessions and consultations as part of the week-long workshop.

In addition to painting on the beach, an indoor painting location in the lodge’s lovely lounge and/or poolside. One day we will travel by water taxi to another island to paint and enjoy island cuisine. 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 painting medium. Class will be held Sat, Sun, Mon, Wed, and Thurs on Elbow Cay. Surrounding areas, are filled with activities for those not participating in the art classes.

“Loosen Up in Mexico!”
with Robert Burridge at Casa de Los Artistas
Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico
10 miles South of Puerto Vallarta
January 13-20, 2024

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.
