Pictured rocks by resident artist Karen Glancy

Join us on Saturday at 3 p.m. for a Zoom rock painting party to find a creative outlet, relax, and hang out!

We use acrylic paint, sharpe pens, paint pens, toothpicks, and waterproof spray, most of which is available at Carpinteria Valley Lumber.

Remember when finding and hiding rocks:

  • Please do not hide rocks if you are sick
  • Wipe painted rocks down with clorox wipes before hiding and after finding
  • Do not touch your face
  • Use hand sanitizer after handling rocks
  • When you return home, wash your hands
  • Enjoy the outdoors but maintain social distancing
