This week, we had the lovely opportunity to have class in the beautiful Japanese Gardens.I have lived on campus all year, just a minutes walk from the Garden, yet I have never gotten around to going. I was shocked by just how beautiful it is inside. The amount of work that it must take to keep it looking so pristine is unimaginable. I found sketching the Garden a little difficult, not only because I’m not the best artist, but because of all of the little details that are in front of you. It is not just one tree or one pond. Every time you look somewhere you see a new detail that you didn’t notice before.
