Pebble Painting | By the Seaside

Pebble Painting | By the Seaside

15 July 2021 12:07 - 15 July 2021

Summer by the Seaside - a series of creative family events promoting mindfulness and well-being

Take some inspiration from the Anstruther seaside and our By the Seaside exhibition to explore how being near the coast makes you feel at our pebble painting activity. This is a family activity so parents must be present throughout.

We will take you down to the beach to select your pebbles (weather permitting). Then you will sit at family stations with painting and decorating materials for some relaxing pebble painting. Take your painted pebbles home, or leave them by the sea for someone else to find!

12 - 1 pm or 2 - 3 pm, 15th July 2021

Entry by Donation. Book online via Eventbrite

If you have any questions ahead of booking or attending the event please contact Each ticket is for a family of up to 4 people from 1 household/bubble.
