Contemporary Kids (At Heart)
Presented by ColorATL
Join us for a free and interactive adult coloring workshop presented by ColorATL and featuring local artist Geinene Carson.
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.
Geinene Carson is a mixed media artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. Art not only gives Carson joy, but keeps her centered, creating white space needed within the chaos of life to listen, explore, and discover. Expressionistic in nature, her artwork embodies a personal intersection of art, faith, and life. Carson is intrigued with the beautiful complexity of our minds and the transformative power of neurogenisis, proving there is hope for the places in our minds yet untapped or in need of restoration.
