The pastime of colouring-in is making a comeback with adults picking up colouring-in books and pencils in a trend that’s scribbling the globe and Griffith City Library is getting on board. Joint Manager Griffith City Library Pam Young said for the month of February, the Library Meeting Room will be transformed into a relaxed haven dedicated to the art of colouring-in.
“Every day throughout the month, adults are encouraged to come along to the Library and get creative,” said Mrs Young. “At the end of the month Library staff will gauge the interest and hopefully run a ‘Colouring Club’ on a weekly or monthly basis – we would love to see this become a permanent fixture.”
Participants don’t have to have a specific skill or do any preparation to join in. “It is so soothing, and you don’t need to be an artist. There are no rules and no skills required, absolutely anyone can join in and get swept away by their imagination,” said Mrs Young.
The Library will supply the colouring sheets and materials required, or you can bring your own and tea and coffee will also be supplied. “Why not get some friends together or pop in during your lunch break and start colouring? It is a great way to destress, unwind, unplug and meet some new people and have fun!” added Mrs Young.
