Rock Painting Party

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Berkley Public Library
Meeting Room
Calling all kids and families! Join us as part of the “Berkley Rocks!” project. Please join us to paint and spread smiles and inspiration all over our city!  All ages are welcome! A fun activity to do with your kids! The paint is washable, but can stain some fabrics, so dress accordingly.

Thanks to the Friends of Berkley Library for sponsoring this event!

“Berkley Rocks!” is part of a growing, national movement by people who paint rocks, then hide them around the city to be found by others. The rocks can be painted with anything you wish to paint; a message, a picture, a character, bright colors, etc. The idea is to bring a smile to the face of the person who finds it, and they are welcome to keep it, or re-hide it for someone else to find.  When a rock is found, the person is directed to the Berkley Rocks Facebook page to show off a rock they found.
