Workshop Abstract Acrylic Painting & Collage

Jun 11 - Jun 16

4 Teaching Days

Description

Abstract Acrylic Painting & Collage

Always wanted to paint abstract? Not quite sure where… or how to begin?

Learn the techniques, basic designs, compositions and color combinations Burridge uses to create more meaningful abstracts. Imagine painting with your fingers, paper towels and big brushes.

This wildly creative class is about creating your new artwork. This is a concentrated workshop, emphasizing planning and making your painting, from concept to the creation of a series. Be prepared to paint looser, bolder, freer, lighter and more meaningful.

We will experiment with variations in materials, using acrylic, watermedia paints and collage. Plenty of time for painting. This workshop is a serious approach for those who have a great sense of humor and a positive attitude. All levels. Handouts provided.

Biography

Robert Burridge, a noted award-winning Industrial Designer who, after twenty-five years in the corporate world, focused his life to painting every day. 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.
