GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) — Members of one Lowcountry community is hoping to brighten someone’s day by putting their arts and crafts skills into action.
We’re told the city of Goose Creek was inspired by Whidbey Island Rocks Facebook page to start its own painted rock community.
Here’s how it works:
The idea is to decorate rocks and hide them in different locations. You can use paint, chalk, sharpies, etc, as long as it has a clear coat of sealer over it to preserve the art.
On the back of the rock, organizers want you to write in sharpie “Post a picture to Goose Creek Rocks Facebook Page” or “Keep me or rehide me” for the finder to keep for themselves or leave for someone else to find.
Other things to keep in mind:
- Remember to be respectful of private properties or businesses.
- Rocks reflect the opinions and attitudes of the individual artists, and not those of the admins, and should be suitable for all ages. We cannot be held responsible for people being offended, or anything else for that matter.
- If you block an admin you will be removed from the group.
- Please make sure the art is weatherproof.
- Any posts attempting to create a rule will be deleted.
- This is not a place to air out any personal issues.
- If you are hunting rocks we ask that you also help decorate or rehide them.
- Any storefront business interested in participating should contact one of the admins.
The activity is meant to be fun for all ages and abilities.
