For this weeks art experience I was very excited because I had never been to the Japanese gardens. What I was not looking forward to was the drawing aspect because I believe I am a terrible drawer. Once walking into the gardens, you kind of forget you’re still in Long Beach. Before actually settling down and beginning to sketch, I took a tour of the garden and my personal favorite thing about the garden were the bonsai trees. After exploring, I found a comfortable spot and began to sketch. I actually enjoyed the experience very much. Having to deal with the stress of finals and what not, when drawing i was very relaxed. Whether it was actually drawing or perhaps just the beautiful setting of the garden. I definitely had more fun in this weeks experience than in others. Overall i think i will definitely be returning to the Japanese Gardens.
