Spread joy this holiday season with Terre Haute Rocks, a local group of enthusiastic rock painters who connect art and creativity with community. Participants will paint a rock of their own, then hide it for someone else to find. The participation guidelines for the Terre Haute Rocks project will be explained so you can continue to extend happiness to the community. Supplies will be provided!
