MINNESOTA BONSAI - July & August 2016

A Publication of the Minnesota Bonsai Society

Black Pine de-candling

July 05 - General Meeting

Many of us struggle with the "art" part of bonsai.  Developing an understanding of design and appreciation of art helps us to develop an eye for proportion, .... Bonsai potter, and artist Nancy Chipps will lead a discussion of the principles of design and how they apply to bonsai.  You will learn several techniques of how to draw trees.

August 02 - General Meeting

In this meeting we will learn how to apply the principles of design that were discussed at the July meeting.  How do we think about design as it applies to stand, pot, tree and supporting design elements?  What do we plan for when looking at the judging criteria for the state fair?  Learning to see bonsai from a design perspective will help you plan for your display at the fair.
