One of the things on our Family Summer Check-List was to paint a canvas and paint a few rocks to hide in our local parks. My son and I were finally able to sit down and get some painting done. He’s still working on his canvas but here is my final product.
I followed the step-by-step instructions from the following Youtube.com video. Great tutorial! I didn’t have have the same paints and tools but I used what I had. I’m quite happy with how it turned out considering.
Our community has a rock painting group. Lots of great artists (professional and amateur) participate. Painted rocks can be hidden in various parks for others to find. The lucky persons can either keep the rocks for their own garden or re-hide them for others to find. This is such a fun thing to do with kids. Tomorrow we will be hiding the following rocks that my son and I have painted at a nearby city park.
Does your community have any fun art things that you and your family can participate in?
