Here's a heads up to the many guides who have been asking about learning ikebana.
Parks is offering two courses this winter/spring in the Tateuchi Room. If you can't make one, you have a chance for the other! Both are entitled Introduction to Ikebana and each costs $85.
The first course starts Tuesday, February 21 and runs weekly for four two-hour sessions from 10 am to noon through March 13. (Course #80407).
The second begins Tuesday, March 27 and also continues for four two-hour sessions from 10 am to noon until April 17. (Course #80410).
Fanny Yau is the instructor. The basic Sogetsu curriculum teaches principles of space, balance and color - you then can go on to create your own freestyle arrangements!
Other upcoming courses in the Tateuchi Room are in water color (Course #79306) beginning February 8; a half day exploring haiku poetry (Course #80404) on March 4, and mixed media photography (Course #79305) on February 24 and March 10.
