Three day workshop, February 22, 23 and 24, 2023
9 am – 3 pm, $425
Just as the alphabet is part and parcel of writing, there are certain building blocks necessary to construct a landscape. Understanding the structural elements of a tree for example, gives you the freedom to go beyond what you see and create beautiful shapes that inspire imagination. By expanding your understanding of structure and form, it prevents you from being restricted to simply copying what you see.  Using a combination of talks, demos and one on one instruction, we will spend three days breaking it down in order to better construct and create a spectacular landscape!
