A recently created Facebook community is encouraging local residents, and visitors to the area, to show off their creativity and explore our area.

Brighten Watauga, the newly created Facebook group, invites users to join them in creatively painting small rocks with a fun picture or enlightening quote, then post pictures of the rocks found & then re-hide them.

Melissa Townsend & DJ Cornett, creators of the local movement, shares with WataugaOnline.com that they had seen other regional Facebook pages having great feedback and thought the positive nature could be an inspiration here.

Both Townsend and Cornett added, “it’s all to be a blessing to someone who might need it.”

Make sure you seal your artwork once you’re done painting so that the weather doesnt wash away its beauty.

Post pictures of the rocks you’ve found & then re-hide it! If you love one you find, keep it, but if you can, paint another to hide in its place to brighten someone else’s day!

Please be careful where you hide your rocks so that they don’t cause any damage to property or put anyone in harms way(dont put rocks in the middle of a walkway where someone could trip over them, etc.). Don’t steal rocks from private property, from someone’s landscaping or from business’.

Painted rocks reflect the opinions, attitudes, & creative expression of the individual artists…not those of the page admin. We cannot be held responsible for you being offended.

Post pictures of the rocks you’ve found & then re-hide it! If you love one you find, keep it, but if you can, paint another to hide in its place to brighten someone else’s day!
