  2. Magnolia House Studios: Zentangle on Zoom - The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. The process of creating a Zentangle® is a form of “artistic meditation” as one becomes completely engrossed in making each pattern, deliberately focusing on every stroke. No prior artistic experience is necessary. Even those who believe that they cannot draw, can learn to Zentangle® and create stunning original art!
  1. CCPL: Animal Art Take and Make - We are ringing in the Summer Reading season with some animal-inspired art projects. Our take-and-make kits will be available until June 19, while supplies last.
  1. CCPL: Summer Stories Outside - We will read stories, sing, and dance. An individual craft activity will be available to complete at home. If we must cancel due to bad weather, we will send an email to the registrants on the morning of the program.
  1. Shop Local at the Downtown Westminster’s Farmers Market - The market is open every Saturday 8am-noon from the week after Mother’s Day through the week before Thanksgiving, which is the longest season of any market in Carroll County.  This gives you 28 weeks to pick up locally-grown produce, meats, poultry, pork, eggs, cheese, baked goods, coffee and prepared foods!
