Art in the Loft is presenting nationally acclaimed artist Robert Burridge in a five-day workshop, May 7-11. The workshop is titled Loosen Up with Aquamedia Painting.

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 participants could end up with too much enthusiasm for painting.

Burridge's flagship workshop offers a variety of painting subjects for everyone. It is 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.

Artist Robert Burridge is shown at work in his studio. He will be presenting a five-day workshop May 7-11 at Art in the Loft.

Starting with small 6x9-inch multiple "warm-up painting exercises" up to larger-format paintings, Burridge's positive approach towards the act of painting will inspire all to loosen up, have fun again and paint more. Participants should come expecting an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where they 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. A positive attitude is a must. Burridge's newest color wheel technique is also included.

There is a $100 non-refundable deposit due upon registration. Cost for the workshop for individuals is $625 if paid by Feb. 1 (early bird discount) and $675 if paid by March 7. Cost for groups of three or larger is $595 if paid by Feb. 1 (early bird discount) and $625 if paid by March 7.
