Yakima Valley Do you like rock painting? Free event this Saturday
Have you ever wandered through Yakima Valley or beyond and come across a painted rock? The artwork of someone who felt inspired instantly puts a smile on your face, you flip the rock over and sometimes there’s a message on the back! You can keep this rock or hide it for someone else to find and enjoy.
Recently my mom took me and my nieces out for ice cream at Selah and one of the girls found a rock painted like a gnome. Payton was so excited she mentioned she had never found one before, so she was going to keep it. Her little sister Charli took a photo so I could post it on the Yakima Valley Rocks Facebook group. If you’re not following them already, I highly recommend it. It’s a fun way to connect with local artists and share what you’ve found and see what people have created. Whether you keep the rock or hide it, it’s always nice to post on the page for the creator and everyone else to enjoy!
Are you ready to paint rocks?
This Saturday April 16th between 1-3pm I will be streaming live at McDonald’s, 3907 River Rd, Yakima, WA 98902 for a super fun free time. Yakima Valley Rocks is having a kids paint party! You can bring your own stone or participate in the event selection, including all the supplies you’ll need to create something that could eventually travel the world!
Bring your art lovers young and old and while you start to come up with ideas, here are some of the amazing rocks that some of our locals have painted!
