Join Liane Wakabayashi, international art teacher long based in Japan, and the creator of the Genesis Cards, for a rare Genesis Art Workshop along the famed mountain viewing platform inside the Bahai Gardens, a World Heritage Site.
Daytime session: Wednesday October 4th
12:30-2:30 Observe and draw a panoramic view of the spectacular gardens, Cypress trees, the historic German Colony and port like no other!
Evening session: Wednesday October 4th
6:30-8:30 Rare opportunity to be inside the illuminated gardens at night!
Did you ever like there are so many places in Israel that you wish you could draw? Come learn how by taking your first steps in this magical world heritage site, the incomparable Bahai Gardens. You’ll be guided how to do this from start to finish.
- You’ll be initiated to both the “frame and sketch” and “sketch-without-looking techniques” that have been the foundation of Genesis Art Workshops for more than 20 years.
- Anybody can join! No art background required!
- You’ll discover how to speak more deeply than you ever imagined possible about the art that you make, simply by picking a random Genesis Card.
12:20/ 6:20 Meet at “the Balcony,” 61 Yefe Nof Street 10 minutes before the session starting time to receive the art supplies and simple lesson instructions.
12:30/6:30 Descend down just two flights of stairs to the viewing platform inside the gardens. This is where we will all stand and draw. Please note that seating isn’t guaranteed due to the popularity of the gardens especially during this holiday week.
12:30-1:20/ 6:30-7:20 Sketching from the balcony
1:20-1:30/7:20-7:30 Walk back up to the Louis Promenade to a nearby café
