On Saturday, March 16, the La Salle Public Library will host Home Depot in offering two free rock painting workshops for those ages 4 and up.
In these creative art workshops, children are encouraged to let their imaginations soar. Participants can paint geometric designs, words of kindness or encouragement, colorful scenes, whimsical animals, favorite characters, or take advantage of the unique shapes of stones by painting the entire surface to look like bees, cats, fish, foxes, hippos, hedgehogs, pizzas, turtles and tigers, to name just a few. The sky is the limit — and kids can paint that, too.
All supplies will be provided by Home Depot. Participants will receive a Certificate of Achievement and a commemorative pin, courtesy of Home Depot, as well as a gift book, courtesy of First Book, and a take-home snack, courtesy of District 122 La Salle Schools.
The workshops will be offered at 2 p.m. and again at 3 p.m. Both sessions are free and open to the public but require registration, as space is limited to 30 participants per session. Children under the age of 8 years must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. All parents are welcome, and encouraged to participate in the fun; some children may need help with reading/following directions. The La Salle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, La Salle. For more information or to register, please call the library at 815-223-2341.
