Burridge’s popular “Loosen Up” workshops nurture individual success and personal enrichment with a big emphasis on daily painting projects at your own pace. It is stress-free, but be warned; you could end up with too much enthusiasm for painting. Burridge’s flagship workshop offers a variety of painting subjects for everyone. A highly energized painting workshop emphasizing loose and creative experimentation. Designed for the professional painter who is stuck in a style as well as for the novice who wants to conquer their fear of painting. Starting with small 6”x9” multiple “warm-up painting exercises” up to larger-format paintings, Burridge’s positive approach towards the act of painting will inspire you to loosen up, have fun again and paint more! Expect an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where you will create many works of art using spontaneity for maximum effect. His critiques are famous for “how to look at your own work” and “where do I go from here?” This workshop has become a must for artists who want the confidence and permission to paint the way they have always wanted to paint. Students will take home preprinted notes of useful and need-to-know information. Burridge’s newest color combination technique is also demonstrated. A positive attitude is a must!
