Learn How to Appreciate Gardens – Down to a Fine Art!
Gardening, Culture, Imagination, and the Arts
We often think of the scientific and technical aspects of gardening, but what about its connection to the arts? Throughout history, the human imagination has come under the enchanting spell of gardening. In various cultures, many creative individuals have turned to ornamental plantings and natural spaces to find solitude and derive inspiration for their works. Various art forms communicate values and ideas, portray beauty and elegance, and express powerful feelings. Spread over three sessions, visitors will learn how classical music, landscape design, and literature can enhance your appreciation of the wonderful world of gardening and nature.
