Contemporary Bonsai Studies Course by Kahi Ching
Kahi will be teaching at the Academy Art Center this Spring 2011. He will be incorporating the Art of Bonsai and 2-Dimensional Art in this class. This will be a new approach from a fine artist’s point of view, and his own steps in documenting, studying, and creating bonsai using “artist” techniques. See link to view the catalog, to learn more about the course, and how to register. We are very excited about this course, he has taught drawing and painting before, but this course will be combing his art knowledge with his love of Bonsai.
