Robert Burridge and many of his paintings

The Central Coast Watercolor Society (CCWS) was founded in 1976 for the purpose of furthering interest and appreciation in the watercolor medium.  It is an independent group of artists, collectors, teachers, students and anyone interested in watercolor and water media.  We are located on the beautiful central coast of California in San Luis Obispo County.  CCWS holds a general meeting each month at 6:30pm at the United Methodist Church, 1515 Fredericks Street, San Luis Obispo. All meetings are free and open to the public and routinely host guest artists, demonstrations, and lectures suitable for all levels.

Internationally renowned Arroyo Grande artist and popular workshop instructor Robert Burridge’s topic will be how to work on a series of paint sketches; he will discuss how he comes up with ideas for painting and demonstrate his process for warming up in his studio with small paint sketches.  He will share creative tools and resources that he uses successfully in his studio. 

​The meeting will take place in the Wesley Room of the San Luis Obispo United Methodist Church (1515 Fredericks St, SLO).
