Wild Art Creation Stations
Located in several spots throughout the Garden, Creation Stations allow visitors to become a part of the exhibition, providing an opportunity for everyone to explore their wild side.
Mandalas: Lace House Lawn adjacent to Historic Bloemendaal House
Mandalas are one of humankind’s most ancient art forms. From the Sanskrit word loosely translated as “circle”, the geometric patterns radiating from a center point mimic the repetition of circles found in nature: the sun, planets, birds nests, and even circles of friends and families with in a community. Create your mandala with pine cones, sweet gum balls, bur acorns, stones and shells.
Rock Cairns: Flagler near Monet Bridge
A cairn is a human-made stack of stones, historically built as a memorial or landmark. As you focus your attention on stacking rocks next to the babbling creek, notice the calming effect it has on you; some people balance rocks as a form of meditation.
Gnome Homes: Children’s Garden at Woodland Pointe
All creatures need shelter. Use these natural materials to become an architect for a day: build a beautiful space for your favorite garden dweller. Toad abodes, fairy houses, and gnome homes are just the tip of the iceberg!
