Jefferson Arts Gallery and Fred's department store have partnered to sponsor a 'Rock Painting' event this Saturday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Art teachers will be onhand to help participants paint their masterpiece on a rock. Tables will be stationed in the front of the store for the activities. Fred's is located at 1150 North Jefferson Street. This is a free event, thanks to the generous donations of Fred's customers, taken up this past month. And, join the local rock painting group on Facebook, 'Monticello Rocks,' so you can post your creations, and learn the purpose of hiding and finding painted rocks in and around Monticello. Join the rock painting movement by painting rocks at Fred's. The instructors will show you everything you need to know about this new way to have fun and channel your creative talents at the same time.
