Popular Coloring for Adults Returns to Central Library on Tuesday, December 15
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is bringing back its popular Coloring for Adults workshop—this time an expanded edition to meet demand.
The Coloring for Adults Holiday Program will take place Tuesday, December 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Youth Department’s Story Castle at Central Library. The program offers a relaxing, beneficial activity for adults that proved popular during its debut in early November, drawing a bigger-than-expected crowd despite rainy weather, said Karyn Davis-West, public coordinator for the Birmingham Public Library.
Free colored pencils, coloring sheets, crayons, and light refreshments will be provided. The program comes as industry leader Crayola has launched Crayola Color Escapes, a line of adult coloring kits featuring 11 by 17-inch black and white illustrations by artist Claudia Nice, plus a collection of colored pencils and colored markers. The Crayola line also features 8 by 10-inch coloring books for $10 featuring themed illustrations (Folk Art Escapes, Whimsical Escapes, Patterned Escapes, and Elegant Escapes).
Here is a link to an article by Gizmodo that discusses how Crayola is positioning its adult coloring book line as a great, cheaper way for adults to relieve stress: http://toyland.gizmodo.com/crayola-now-has-its-own-line-of-coloring-books-for-adul-1741546239.
