Sketching Bonsai Workshop May 12, Douglas Charles © 2018.

The Northern California Society of Botanical Artists is holding a workshop taught by Lee McCaffree, “Sketching Bonsai in Pen and Ink.” The workshop has been rescheduled to
Saturday, May 12, 2018,  10:00am -3:00pm
in Menlo Park, California

Enjoy a day of sketching Bonsai trees among an extensive collection of plants in Menlo Park. Learn about the basic structure of this art form, and how to capture the essence of an individual specimen(s) in pen and ink. This workshop is intended to be fun and relaxing—depicting the trees overall design instead of the exact details. Everyone is welcome.

The cost is $30 for NCalSBA members; $40 for non–members. The workshop cost includes a donation to NCalSBA and the Bonsai Garden.

There are still a few seats available. To register, and for more information about the workshop (including a materials list), contact D. Hunter.

A quick reminder to my original blog post: the California Native Plant Society (CPNS) is holding a botanical art exhibit in conjunction with their Conservation Conference, January 15-17 in San Jose. The entry deadline for submission of artwork is November 1, 2014. They would love to see our artwork there.

Artists are invited to enter original artwork in any two-dimensional medium that reflects the beauty and uniqueness of California flora and adheres to high standards of botanical accuracy. All entries must depict plants indigenous to California.

More information is at the CNPS web site. You may also download the PDF form 2015 Prospectus CNPS Botanical Art Exhibition, or contact Bernard Halliwell.

The Northern California Society of Botanical Artists (NCalSBA) will be helping with the exhibit and coordinating techniques demonstrations at the Conference. Lesley Randall will be coordinating BAGSC members who would like to help our NCalSBA counterparts. More to come on demonstration opportunities later!
