Join us in a thoughtful observation of a garden at rest. With the leaves now gone and shadows growing longer, winter is an ideal time to see the garden designer's vision. The subtle, strong "bones" of the garden are more evident and the intricate design structures of the trees and shrubs are now uncovered. The show pieces of gardens become the lines, textures, and colors of stone, bark, iron, and glass. Add just a dusting of snow, and views become a study in high contrast and simple forms.

Learn tips, tricks, and techniques for capturing the best winter images as well as for keeping your equipment safe and dry while you do so with recorded lectures available in our online learning platform beginning February 23. There you will also find material about plants with special winter interest.

Apply the techniques you learn and submit up to two digital images for critique by instructor Bob Gross. The learning culminates in a live-streamed question-and-answer and lessons-learned session on March 16.

Online materials remain available to you for six months from class start date.
