PPN Presents Richard Sturdevant  "PPA Merit Class"

Coming September 16th & 17th the Stattron Center, Shelbyville, Kentucky

     Saturday 9:00AM - 4:30PM


 "Crushing the Box"

Join Richard Strudevant for a trip into the artistic soul. Creating an exceptional fine art composite consists of many things, but the two that separtate good from great are conception and finish. Conception and the ability to dream up a visual idea or to tell a visual story that is unique to your vision, is priceless. Equally important is the ability to bring it all together in such away that it is beautiful and meaningful to the viewer. The finish of the art should keep the viewer engaged in the content and not the technique. Everything in between this journey is trained execution.

In the program, Richard will share like never before on this process. Known for his style, concepts and the way he finishes up and image. He will share how to create concepts that reflect who you are and how to execute them and most of all finish them in such a beautiful way.
