Get some tips for festive natural decor from Marina Khudobina, who will present a special holiday version of her Ikebana demonstration on Thursday, December 1 at 2 p.m. in the Winn Room at the Coronado Public Library.

Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. It can be done by anyone, any time, anywhere. Ikebana requires living flowers. Everything is devoted to creating beauty in the moment, giving artistic life to transient flowers through the repeated act of arranging them.

Khudobina was born in Armenia and grew up in Ukraine. She learned Ikebana from a Japanese teacher in Belgium. Khudobina came to San Diego about 30 years ago and happily calls it her hometown. She further studied Ikebana in San Diego with Hiroko Fukuhara, learning Sogetsu Ikebana, one of the most recent and innovative movements within this art form. Khudobina has done exhibitions with Ikebana International at Balboa Park. She also participated in an event at the Oceanside Museum of Art, and has been a part of Art Alive through the San Diego Museum of Art for many years.
