It is said that the simplest acts of kindness can change someone's day. Join us as we paint "Happiness Rocks" to spread around the community to brighten people's lives. Considered random acts of art, rocks can be painted by all ages with bright colours, images, intricate designs or simple messages, then shared with total strangers. We will also be hosting a page where people can comment on the rock they found, where they found it, how it affected them, and if they plan to re-hide it. This is a drop-in class, and all supplies are included. Let's make the world a happier place, one rock at a time. Visit tbpl.ca/happinessrocks for more information.
