Capital Arts is inviting the public to come and paint messages of hope and encouragement on rocks or flower pots that will be distributed to those impacted by the tornado.

Its goal is to leave small tokens of hope and love in areas of despair, according to a post on its Facebook page.

"I was trying to think of a way for Capital Arts to give back through the arts," said Holly Nunn, president of the Capital Arts board. "We just wanted to give them a little bit of cheer."

Last week, Capital Arts teamed up with Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson City and had the children get involved in painting rocks and pots. Painting opportunities continued Tuesday, along with today and Thursday, according to the Capital Arts Facebook page.

The event is free and open to the public noon-5 p.m. at Capital Arts, 1203 Missouri Blvd.; all supplies are provided.
