Since December 2015, I've been hosting a wonderful way for adults to reconnect to their creative impulse, 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 throughout 2017!

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 adults 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.

This free workshop is held on the first Monday of every month at the Encino-Tarzana Library from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. All dates for 2017 are listed below.

Thanks to the Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library, all coloring pages and coloring pencil sets are provided, free of charge!

I have created a resource sheet for coloring enthusiasts that contains information about various color pencil brands, color markers and websites that offer LOTS of fun and FREE coloring pages for your enjoyment. I also find various articles about the benefits of coloring for adults, all of which I print and share with all participants in the workshop.

This coloring workshop is a wonderful way to tap into your innate creative impulse AND a great way to relax in a soothing restorative atmosphere with a community of others who enjoy coloring.
