Family Paint Night with Roxane Tracey from Fresh Paint Studios

“We were painting a canvas and making a family tree. We put tape on the canvas so that it looks like a tree and you sponged the canvas with paint. When the paint was dry you take off the tape and it looks like a tree.  Then you put birds on it, each bird represents one family member. That is what happened at paint night. It was fun.” By Barbara

The Kindness Rock Project

Kindness rock on shelf

The idea of Kindness Rocks was created by a woman named Megan Murphy. She painted rocks and wrote a kind message and left it on a beach for other people to find. The kindness Rocks Project began at Westmount when we, grade fours, were learning about rocks and minerals in class. We were also reading a novel called “Wonder” at the time. Wonder was all about kindness.     (Sarha)

In our school we started painting rocks and placing them inside the school so everyone can find it and be happy.  (Servan)

How it worked around the school was, we would hide a rock where someone can find it then when they find it they will pass it on. It made people feel happy, excited and feel good.    (Halima)
