Japanese Flower Arranging - Ikebana Sogetsu

The art of Japanese flower arranging functions as a path for the creative spirit. A gift of Ikebana is to look at flowers from a perspective that provides tranquility and peace of mind from within. Use your aesthetic awareness to assemble materials, choosing their most beautiful aspects, assemble them in a different order, and endow them with a value transcending that which they had in nature. Students are required to provide their own supplies.

Bryce Myers works and teaches in various media in the Windward Community College art department, bringing a wide range of skills into the ceramics studio. Throughout the year he teaches courses in Figure Sculpture, Moldmaking for Ceramics and Sculpture, and both Wheel throwing and Handbuilding as the foundation for all ceramic techniques.  His watercolor classes focus on the landscape and ‘Plein Aire’ (outdoors) painting, which is where his two-dimensional and three-dimensional work meet up and where most all of his subject matter is rooted: our history and presence in the landscape, and the forms and feel of nature.
