Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Nov. 21, 2019 Pinson: Teen Mandala Rock Painting at Cosby Lake

Teen Mandala Rock Painting at Cosby Lake

Where: 6255 Old Springville Rd
                   Pinson, AL 35126

When:Thursday, November 21st from 1:00pm-3:00pm

Details: Come join us for some rock painting at the beautiful Cosby Lake.  Just bring a smooth rock to paint, paints to paint with and various "dotting" tools and paint brushes.  You do not have to go out and buy dotting tools.  You can make your own with items found around the house.  You can use cotton swabs, the eraser end of a pencil, the end of different sized make up brushes, or even toothpicks.  You can also use paint brushes to make your dots.  If you are unfamiliar with Mandala Painting, just google it and there will be tons of pictures to reference.  I will have plenty of grids and ideas for the kids to get inspiration from.  

I will have light snacks and water.  You are welcome to bring your own snacks or a snack to share.  

RSVP is not required, but if you do plan to join us, please email me jenbohan77@gmail.com and let me know how many you will have participating, so I can make sure to have enough snacks and drinks.


I will not have extra rocks or supplies, so please be sure to bring whatever you need to paint your rock and of course your rock :) 

***Please note this event is for teens, but siblings are welcome. Cosby Lake does not have a playground.  It has several paths to walk around the lake, a couple of bench swings, pavilions, and restrooms.  ***

This is an Everest Academy Event, but open to all homeschoolers.  Please familiarize yourself with our field trip Participation Policy.    http://www.alabamahomeschooling.com/search?q=field+trip+policy
