Bonsai is the ancient art form of growing miniature trees in containers, which help us connect to nature. Through this process, it strengthens our spirit. This is why Bonsai can be a figurative mirror image of the grower. With an open heart and mind, students can start their own journey of personal growth through the art of bonsai taught by Bonsai Master Julian Velasco.
Learn the artistic, philosophical, horticultural, and technical process of designing, planting, and maintaining your very own bonsai.
