Students in Randy’s art class learned about Bonsai trees first quarter. They spent the beginning of the quarter creating Bonsai pots. Each students made ceramic pots for small, medium and large size trees. Then using primarily Juniper shrubs purchased from local nurseries created Bonsai trees. The students learned to wire their tree to their pots, add the Akadama soil, how to trim them and finally how to wire them into the desire form. Most of the students really enjoyed the process and took a lot of pride in their tree. They were looking forward to taking them home after the parent teacher-conferences are completed.
