BAGSC member Deborah Shaw will be teaching “Journaling in your Garden” workshops during the month of June at the J. Paul Getty and Bowers Museum.

At The Getty Center: On Sundays, June 1 and June 15, 2014, 3:30 – 5:30 pm, Deb will be teaching “Drawing from the Masters: Creating a Garden and Wildflower Journal.” These workshops are part of the Getty’s tradition of sketching from original works of art every first and third Sundays of the month. “Creating a Garden and Wildflower Journal” will focus on the value of journaling, what to look for, and how to draw leaves and flowers. The workshop is free, and all experience levels are welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring sketchpads. Sign-up begins at 2:30 pm the day of the workshop at the main information desk, no preregistration required.

The Getty Center is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049. Admission is always free; parking is $15.00.

At Bowers Museum: Deborah also will be teaching a two-part series on Tuesdays, June 10 and June 17, 2014, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm in the John M. Lee Court at Bowers Musuem. Drawing and Painting Wildflowers and Flowers from your Garden will cover what to look for when looking at flowers and leaves, perspective tips, and graphite and color techniques to quickly capture plants and wildflowers in your journal.

Costs for individual classes are $15.00 for Bowers members, and $25.00 for non-members. Both workshops are available for Bowers members for $25.00, and $35.00 for non-members. A $15.00 materials fee is payable at the time of the class. Advance reservations required to enable the accurate purchase of supplies: e-mail or call the Education Department at 714.567.3677.

These workshops complement lectures at the Bowers on Renaissance Gardens (June 7) and Wildflowers (June 21). Bryan C. Keene, assistant curator of manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum will be giving the lecture about Renaissance Gardens. BAGSC members who participated in last Summer’s demonstrations at The Getty in conjunction with their “Gardens of the Renaissance” show will remember Bryan’s wonderful exhibition. Bryan will discuss the design, function, and meanings behind the many types of gardens planted in Europe between 1400-1600. Delve into illuminated manuscripts to discover how art, science, religion, myth, diet, and world travel shaped the evolving Renaissance garden.

The “Wildflowers” lecture and book signing will be given by Robert L. Allen. His recent publications, “Wildflowers of Orange County and the Santa Ana Mountains” can be purchased at the Bowers Gallery Store.

Bowers Museum is located in Santa Ana, CA, at 2002 North Main Street, 92706. Directions are included in the link above to Bowers Museum.
