The staff at Art of the Soul encourages an inner examination of the self through artistic expression. Creative Spirit classes grant students three hours of freedom to delve into the process of creating art without the constraints of a specified media and models that refuse to pose in fruit baskets. During each course, artists adorn surfaces such as canvas, fiber, and metal work with eco-friendly materials to visually interpret the workings of the subconscious, and Picassos can take home their finished masterpiece after class. The program’s only goal is to inspire personal expression and build upon a love of art and a penchant for wearing smocks.

Located in the heart of downtown, the Indianapolis Zoo allows visitors to immerse themselves in the natural habitat of a myriad of wildlife. The Ocean exhibit features the country’s largest smooth dogfish shark touch pool and a 17-foot underwater dome for viewing dolphins. Nearby, the Desert exhibit raises the temperature to appease the meerkats, iguanas, cacti and poisonous snakes that inhabit the space. The Plains exhibit allows kids and adults alike to check out the lions through thick-gauge glass, explore a pavilion overlooking white rhinos as they play in the mud, watch staff feed giraffes or feed them yourself and test your legs against a simulation of the zoo’s own cheetahs. Elsewhere, guests can gawk at tigers and fawn over brown bears, then ride the zoo’s mini-train for a faraway look at animals and behind the scenes pavilions, before taking in the sprawling, butterfly-filled indoor garden.
