Painted Rock Garden - (free activity)

ALL AGES WELCOME

Join in the fun and help FAVA create a painted rock garden! With an acrylic paint kit provided by FAVA, select rocks or stones and paint a flower, foliage green leaves, tree bark or bugs like dragonflies, bees or lady bugs or birds. Once delivered back to FAVA, a rock garden installation is planned.

You will need:

  • Rocks (normally rougher surface) or stones (smoother surface)

  • container with water to rinse brushes in between colors
  • a cloth or paper towel for blotting brushes

When registering please select which pickup date/time you prefer and the number of materials kits needed. Pickups scheduled for Tuesdays 5-7pm and Thursdays 11am-1pm.

Painted rocks can be dropped off at FAVA on Tuesdays 5-7pm and Thursdays 11am-1pm.

Instructions:
