  3. Boulder Paitings

    June 17, 2020, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Bellaboo's Play & Discovery Center

    You’ve heard of Rock Paintings, right? It’s pretty fun. We like it. But, do you know what we love to do? Paint the boulders! It’s a camp favorite we are happy to grow in this garden art program. (It’s also much safer for the many lawnmowers that help us take care of the garden.) Dip, splatter, dot, swipe- wipe, and start over- it’s up to you! The beauty of art is the process. The rain will eventually wash away these masterpieces to leave us a blank canvas the next time we head to the boulders. Come paint!
