Introduction to Landscape: From Sketch To Finished Work


Join Rick Cepella for a one- day intensive focus on landscape art that will be of great benefit to those who enjoy all aspects of drawing and painting and are serious about upping their own practice. Rick will share how he has combined decades of time sketching and recording in the field with a studio practice that allows him to create bold, expressive works born of his passion for the natural world and keen study of painting in its many forms. This is an excellent opportunity to share in the wealth of experience and knowledge of an artist/educator who thrives on the enthusiasm of his fellow artists and students.
