    A sampling of activities include:

    • Zentangles
      • Try your hand at drawing Zentangles inspired by the artist’s calligraphic scribblings
    • Pebble Meditation
      • Museums can be a place to reflect and find your calm place. Using pebbles like those in Bauermeister’s stone pictures, practice Mindful Meditation for all ages with Ryūmon H. Baldoquín, sensei, Soto Zen Buddhist priest and Dharma teacher, community religious adviser with Smith’s Center for Religious and Spiritual Life, and co-founder of Two Streams Zen. 
    • Opti-Art
