Lecture: Bonsai Demonstration 2

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan. Co-sposored by the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum

Join us for a conversation focused on the world of Japanese bonsai as seen through the eyes of American fine artist, Adam Jones. With the foundation of Japanese bonsai aesthetics as a starting point we will discuss the history and principles of Japanese bonsai.

Bonsai has a long history in Japan and continues to be a popular practice around the world today. You can even purchase and see bonsai trees here in Washington D.C.


Adam Jones has a degree in fine arts, including ceramics, painting, and printmaking. In 2011 he moved to Japan to pursue the study of bonsai.
