Atlanta Contemporary and ColorATL will be streaming a community coloring event - print off an amazing ColorATL coloring page, and enjoy a Q&A between ColorATL and participating artists. We’re going back to basics and relaxing with these coloring pages drawn by local Atlanta artists.
For every coloring book purchased, ColorATL donates a another to a person in the Atlanta community facing hardship. Right now, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak they are focusing on donations to medical facilities like Wellstar, Grady, and the Atlanta Medical Center.
ColorATL, Atlanta’s adult coloring book, combines the power of creative activity with the thriving art culture of Atlanta to benefit those in difficult circumstances. Not only does ColorATL offer a deeper, more interactive look into Atlanta’s artists, but they believe creative activity has the ability to decrease stress, anxiety, and despair - and cultivate peace, joy, and hope. ColorATL strives to unify our city through creativity by workshops, events, and through our 1:1 model - for every book sold, one is given to a person facing hardship at local partnering organizations. William Massey, Amber Guinn, and Connor Dwyer began organizing this project in Spring of 2016 and released ColorATL Volume 1 in October.
