Family Saturday: Lotus Pond

Join us on Saturday, March 9, at 2:00 pm in The Second Buddha: Master of Time to learn about the story of Padmasambhava or Lotus Born. Using this story and the image of the lotus flower floating on water, we will create our own lotus ponds with colored paper, acetate, paint pens, tissue paper, and pom poms.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative collaboration through looking at artwork in our galleries, discussing and sharing ideas, and engaging in a hands-on art activity inspired by those conversations.

All programs run from 2:00 to 3:30 PM and are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions.

Registration is required. You can register beginning one week before each program. For more information and to register, call our Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080. We welcome visitors of all abilities! Be prepared to get messy and have fun! Share your Family Saturday photos on social media by including #tangfamsat.
