*This will mark the 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of this monthly gathering!


Since December 2015, I've been hosting a wonderful way for adults to reconnect to their innate creativity, a fun yet easy activity that also offers relaxing stress relief in a calm and restorative environment. It's called "COLORING FOR ADULTS", a creative workshop that is held monthly at the Encino-Tarzana Library and I'm happy to announce that we will be continuing with this wonderful and relaxing gathering in 2018!

The Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library have created a special page on their website just for this monthly event! You can see the results of the participants coloring fun pages by visiting this website:


The restorative effects of coloring can be felt immediately with the soothing movement of coloring shapes on a page and meditating upon the colors being used. Check out this informative article to learn how coloring provides stress relief, improves mood and helps with creative engagement for the mind.

In 2017, we have had a 'theme' for each month of coloring, to celebrate fun or whimsical holidays. There have been special coloring pages created by wonderful artists that have been made available to our coloring group, and I have designed a few fun coloring pages as well. I'm happy to announce that the themes will continue in 2018, along with a few new specially designed coloring pages for this monthly workshop!

This free workshop is held on the first Monday of every month at the Encino-Tarzana Library from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. Dates for 2018 are listed above.

Thanks to the Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library, all coloring pages and coloring pencil sets are provided, free of charge! Special thanks to Swains Art Supply for donating a wonderful set of Pentalic color pencils for the workshop participants to use, and for providing a discount for the all the new Pentel 24-color pencil sets!

This coloring workshop is a wonderful way to tap into your innate creative instinct AND a great way to relax in a soothing restorative atmosphere with a community of other coloring enthusiasts!
