An artful process like drawing is intimidating for some and easy for others, but so is the art of bonsai. Both require practice and patience with the medium and with ourselves, but we all start somewhere, and there’s not a better time to try than now! In this 4-hour workshop intensive, Ben will guide you along the way to combining these two practices into one for the growth and enjoyment of both artforms. With the Bonsai Exhibition Garden as the perfect setting, students will learn a variety of sketching techniques to assist in the development of bonsai design as well as learn aspects of tree growth. Designed to assist the artist within; all levels, novices and experts alike, will benefit from this artful approach.
