Buddha Board

Maker - Amber Williams

Buddha Board

Maker Story

Create, Reflect, Relax

It can be hard to live in the moment when we’re always juggling tasks, scheduling activities, and playing catch-up. The Buddha Board lets you slow down, let go, and savor the enjoyment of creating.

The inventor is Eric Thrall, who envisioned a way to help people embrace the Zen concept of mindfulness. His drawing board is both a meditative product and a doodling tool. When you paint on the Buddha Board surface with water, the image darkens. As the water evaporates, the artwork slowly fades. What’s left is a blank slate—literally and figuratively. When the water disappears, so do the feelings and emotions that went into the artwork, leaving the artist with a clear mind, Eric says.

Learning to appreciate change and to value the present is important for all ages. The Buddha Board is a great tool for unleashing creativity without worrying about perfection or permanence. You can create artwork or simply doodle or practice brush strokes. The art may be fleeting, but the enjoyment lingers.
