Description

Welcome Port Washington's latest magical adventure:

Port Washington Rocks!

The Treasure-Hunting Trend Hits Port Washington! All across America, people are taking part in this exciting new project and now this new craze is heading to Port Washington.

Come Rock Out at Port Washington's first Rock Painting Party and help create over 100 new rocks to share and hide throughout the neighborhood.

Port Washington Rocks, founded by the non-profit organization Full STEAMM Ahead, is a local group that was created to paint rocks and scatter them around the neighborhood to spread kindness and positive messages throughout the community. The overall goal is to encourage people to create beautiful art work, and to recognize that this creation can brighten somebody’s day. The project is not about any one person; rather, it is about residents being creative and using that creativity to make Port Washington an even better place.

Throughout the evening, participants will learn various techniques using using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math and Mindfulness to create their unique piece of stone art. All artists will then label the back of their stones with the words Port Washington Rocks Facebook Page. At the end of the event all participants are encouraged to hide their rocks in some unexpected location in Port Washington. When the rock is discovered, hopefully, the lucky finder will post on our Facebook page so that you can see your creation again! The finder can then keep the rock if it really moves them, or hide it again to share the love!

Activities include:

-Learn various rock painting techniques taught by local artists

-Mandela Affirmations

-Practice The Art of Balancing Stone Meditation

-Explore the scientific concept of Chemiluminescence and produce your own glowing stone

-Face painting (additional charge)

-Roasting Marshmallows around the campfire.

We are honored to welcome Port Washington's very own "Rock" star, Dave Diamond. Throughout the evening singer/songwriter Dave Diamond will be indulge our senses by playing Djembe and assorted hand drums.
