           The APLD-NJ Chapter presents their 2016 Winter Workshop:
“Unleashing Creativity in Garden Design” on Saturday, January 23, from 9:30 to 5:00 pm at the Holly House at Rutgers Gardens in New Brunswick, NJ.  Acclaimed designer and architect W. Gary Smith, FASLA, will help us to realize our creative potential with lecture and hands-on exercises.  As Gary himself proclaims, “All artistic expression begins with the self, and in this workshop you will unleash new forms of personal creativity, developing your own visual vocabulary of shapes, patterns, and forms to use in garden design. We will explore simple techniques for unleashing personal creativity, looking at the garden through the eyes of your own inner artist. You are invited to bring and share a sketch or plan of a current design, or simply bring your willingness to stretch your creativity and imagination. No previous artistic experience is required.”
W. Gary Smith is an enthusiastic and engaging speaker.
His book, From Art To Landscape,won the AHS Book
Award. Many other awards have been given for his designs installed in public spaces around the United States.
