    • Prayer Bowls.  Groups may contact the Center for the Arts to schedule.  Often we mean to think or pray for others, but forget what those needs are.  A prayer bowl solves that problem by creating a space to store those reminders.  Decorate ceramic bowls with alcohol inks to serve as your own “prayer bowl.”
