Coloring for Adults Returns to Central Library on January 19
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL)’s Coloring for Adults workshop is returning to the Central Library. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, January 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in the Youth Department’s Story Castle at the Central Library.
On January 8, a Springville Road Regional Branch Library program called Color Me Calm attracted a bigger-than-expected afternoon crowd, and included a short discussion of studies supporting the benefits of coloring for adults. Coloring For Adults offers a relaxing activity that proved popular during its debut in early November, drawing large crowds to the Central Library in November and December, 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).
