Rock on: Get creative juices flowing—paint rocks and pebbles and design your own rock garden.

Materials needed:

  • Rocks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Water for clean up
  • Brushes
  • A paint shirt so you don't ruin your clothes
  • Paper Towl

Make sure you start with clean dry rocks, coat them with paint and let dry ( only do this when supervised). You are the artist, so be as creative with your painted designs as you want to be! When you are finished, find the perfect spot to showcase your work; be Zen about it and carefully place stones or let the stones guide you and place them organically. Did you know you just completed your first hardscape design! A hardscape designer makes awesome things with rocks like flagstone patios, retaining walls, pathways, outdoor ovens, and firepits! They utilize natural materials to build structures and beautify spaces. Learn more about what a licensed architect does>
