“If I Were a Bonsai Tree…”:   Let your individuality shine in this self-expressive art workshop for children.   Parents and adults wanting to access their inner child are welcome to participate!  Led by author/illustrator Lora Nakamura (The Bonsai Babes: A Love Story), participants will be introduced to the bonsai tree through The Bonsai Babes characters, Nana and Luna, two little girls from L.A. with big dreams and bonsai tree hair, symbolic of their transformation and unique experiences.  A guided art activity will follow.  All participants will be able to take home their artwork and will also receive a small Bonsai Babes gift.

In conjunction with Target Free Saturdays, the museum and all workshops are free all day.  For info and schedule, go to
