Based on positive member feedback on the 2018 mini-symposium program format, we have planned 5 programs for 2019. Each of these will be 4-6 hours in length which allows for a deep dive into the subject matter, and ample time for networking and Chapter business. We will continue to address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with the Program Committee!



APLDWA January Event:

Creative Sketching Workshop

Date: Thursday, January 10th, 2019
Location: Mercer Island Community & Event Center
8236 SE 24th St, Mercer Island, WA 98040
(206) 275-7609

Start your new year by polishing your drawing skills. Learn to sketch a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional picture plane, aka parallel perspective drawings. Erin Lau, our fellow APLD designer and sketcher extraordinaire will coach you to convert 'before' pictures into colorful design concepts that you can choose to share with clients or simply use the illustrations as basis for more detailed landscape plans. Erin's book, Drawn to Garden, is pure meditative coloring art and will surely inspire you to join this workshop.

Erin Lau is a Landscape Designer and owner/founder of Erin Lau Design. Erin considers landscape design from an artistic, architectural and ecological perspective. Bringing together her background in architecture, landscape architecture, illustration and gardening, Erin approaches each design with a unique eye for detail and deep understanding of the design process. She believes that the garden, however large or small, should be designed as a whole system, in which every part connects with one another.

Erin holds a degree in Landscape Architecture from University of Southern California, where she graduated with honors. She is a Certified Professional Horticulturist (CPH) and a Certified Permaculture Designer. Erin is also an avid sketcher & illustrator, see her blog on sketching and garden design on DrawntoGarden.com.
