Kindness Rocks Community Workshop
October 6 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Help us spread love and kindness beyond the walls of your home by painting rocks to contribute to Kindness Rocks! With your help, Kindness Rocks will reflect community spirit in the form of a rock garden as part of The Bentway’s Community Incubation Program, bringing joy to everyone who visits.
Join Paddy Leung for rock painting workshops at The Bentway Studio at Canoe Landing (55 Fort York Blvd) every Wednesday in October from 3:30 – 6:00 PM.
Learn how to prepare the rock surface, outline the designs, mix paints, and apply various painting methods. We will use bright colours, symbols, patterned designs, words of encouragement, and anything that spreads joy or positivity. At the end of the program, participants can collect them to keep, or trade with others. Kindness Rocks is a public art program with a collective vision of transforming a space to bring hope, connectedness, and play!
