Celebrate engaging narratives, animal characters, songs in different languages and home-spun wisdom as one of New England’s favorite storytellers takes us from the heart of the Amazon rainforest to the villages of Africa on the wings of story, rhythm and song. “My family was at your amazing performance of “Join In” yesterday. It’s amazing how you bring together many aspects of art and present them for kids so they use their imagination to “see” all the characters you’re talking, dancing and singing about. Personally, I was very happy with your folktales about the rainforests. I’m from Brazil where we have a rich heritage from Africa and we live in the US where my son was born. We loved to hear “O Pião entrou na roda, ó pião! Roda pião, bambeia pião!”. I used to sing this song myself when I was kid. It was delightful. :~)” ~Marcia, Linden School, Malden, MA

Japanese Arts Center, Ryu Shu Kan Create your own Zen Rock Garden History,
Multicultural- Other,
Nature- Gardening
The Japanese rock garden (karesansui) or "dry landscape" garden, often called a Zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water. A Zen garden is usually relatively small, and is usually meant to be seen while seated from a single viewpoint such as the veranda of a temple or monastery. Classical zen gardens were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life. Participants will learn about all the features that go into creating their own garden at home, with photos of and directions on how to place the elements in proper spacing and design.
