On July 3, That Art Place held a rock painting event to support the local Belton community. There is a local sensation that has taken place in Belton. This local sensation is called Belton Rocks and many in the area are eager to participate. Many Belton citizens have seen the painted rocks left around all over the city. These decorated rocks can be seen in the local stores, parks, and churches. When a painted rock is spotted then that individual can visit the Facebook page and report the rock citing. This is great local community fun that many have enjoyed. The owner of That Art Place, Michelle Weaver, wanted to make sure all the citizens can participate in the Belton rocks fun. Weaver just wanted the local citizens to bring their rocks and her company provided the paint.
“We wanted to do a rock painting event so people could come and paint their own rocks,” said Weaver. “This is something we really wanted to support because it is fun and local.”
There were many citizens that wanted to support the local fun. That Art Place had more than 250 citizens come to the event to show their support and have fun.
