Bonsai




Last Tuesday, Hamish brought his three bonsai trees into class and we got to observe and then to sketch them. It was very fun, everybody loved it. There were three tables, one for each bonsai. Here are some examples of the sketches we did. Bonsai trees originated in China and have been carried on for centuries. You have to get seeds of trees that would normally grow quite big, but you try to keep them small by trimming the roots and branches of the tree.
