Pelham Art Center Community Art Days June 7, July 5, & August 12

Come speak with an artist, watch an artist create, and join in on our new community art project!

Part of the upcoming Community Art Days is “Pelham Art Rocks!”–a collaborative public art installation consisting of individual rocks painted by our community members. Come take a rock, paint a rock, and leave a rock under the Pelham Art Center red arch! Visitors can create a rock during any of the three Community Art Days, or paint their rock at home and return it under the arch later. Pelham Art Center invites everyone to contribute a colorful design to build an Art Rock Garden as a tribute to the strength and beauty of our community.

For those painting from home, suggested paints are acrylic and details can be added using paint markers. Consider mandala rocks, patterned rocks, inspirational words, spirals, shapes and patterns for your design. It is recommended to add a top coat clear acrylic sealer on top of your painted rocks.
