CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACT FIGURE AND COLLAGE* with Robert Burridge
$525 AC members, $575 nonmembers
Drawing, painting and collaging the contemporary nude is the focus of Mr. Burridge’s popular workshop. You will learn expressive painting techniques for the modern painter. If you ever wanted to learn how to paint the freestyle abstract figure, this workshop is for you. You will learn the 12 Design Compositions for a successful painting. Your “drawing the nude” skills are not a prerequisite and a variety of poses with undraped female models will be offered. Color will be explained and explored with lots of exercises for paint sketching, gestural drawing and finger painting techniques. Be prepared to paint looser, bolder, freer, lighter and more intuitively. There will be action-filled painting exercises, demos and personalized attention and handouts will be provided. All water soluble paints are welcomed and a materials list will be provided. No photography, please.
