Bios

ColorATL

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.
