Craft-time Prior to Monthly Meeting
Ceres Garden Club monthly meetings now include morning Craft Time during the social Coffee Time starting at 9:30 a.m. on the third Thursday monthly in the Ceres Community Center. Business Meeting starts at 11:00 a.m. followed by the Learning Lecture with featured guest speaker at 11:30 a.m.
Rock Painting is the current world-wide phenomena with designs of intricate henna style, flowers, garden sayings, gnome home, fairy houses, and any and everything in between. Vivid acrylic paints are either brushed or penciled onto the rock surface, and the finish design is set with a coat of clear shellac. Placed in the garden, on a desk or table top for an eye-catching decoration, no matter what the design or purpose, a painted rock brings up feelings of peace and tranquility from the pleasure gleaned through creativity.
Karen Thomas, Craft Chairman, instructed in another fun hands-on learning experience. Providing the rocks, paint, brushes, and everything needed for the craft experience, members and guests paid for the cost of materials used, with a donation going towards the Scholarship fund, also.
Rock Painting will be featured again at the April General Meeting. Everyone is invited to participate in the fun craft. If you do not want to keep your painted rock, you are welcome to donate it to be offered to the public in our booth at the Ceres Street Faire. Fee for donated painted rocks will be paid by the Ceres Garden Club.
