Ikebana/Kado I

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging, stemming from a love of nature and a delight in discovering the elegance and creativity of being human. Ikebana is also called "kado, the way of flowers" because it is a meditative practice as well as an art form. We study the classical and improvisational forms of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, founded by Sofu Teshigahara, as well as Japanese culture. Ikebana teaches you that everyone has the gentleness and courage of artistic expression. Cross-listed as TRA520.
