The Art & Science of Trees

Event Details


On Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021 at 7pm, the Academy of Art University’s School of Landscape Architecture invites you to a free virtual workshop with Heather Clendenin, the school’s founding director.

In this 60-minute interactive workshop, Ms. Clendenin will share the ways in which trees impact our daily lives – everything from how they create outdoor spaces to how they sequester carbon monoxide. The basic structure of trees and their many forms will also be introduced as you learn how to draw them accurately in plan and in elevation, complete with shadows and texture.

You won’t want to miss this exclusive event. You’ll never look at a tree the same way again!
