Drawing on Bonsai: Sketching in the National Collection:


Be inspired by the beauty of the world's first and finest bonsai collection at the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum located at the National Arboretum. Capture the tiny trees' intricacies, history, and serenity on paper with the help of one of our area's treasured botanical artists and instructors, Tina Thieme Brown. Tina specializes in capturing the flora and fauna of the Greater D.C. Area and has published two books of illustrations. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to get “up close and personal” with some of the most historic bonsai in the world, and to take a small part of them home with you. Artists of any skill level are welcome to participate in this class.
