ACT: Adult Coloring Therapy

Arts and Crafts
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Schlessman Hall - Level 1

Work out your feelings at an inspiring color-in hosted by Fresh City Life. Coloring inside or outside the lines is encouraged. There will be a community table with a mural-sized coloring page that everyone can work on together. And, in case you need some alone time, there will be another station where you can work on your own coloring page to take home. You choose, but whatever you choose, it is a fun and artful way to get centered and reduce stress. And after we work on it for two days, we’ll display the mural to share it with our library customers!

A Quilter's Journey: My Road to Denver

Exhibit

Members of the Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild will depict their individual journeys to Colorado. These quilts, original in design, are 18" x 24" and will be displayed both vertically and horizontally, with no borders or bindings, so that when hung together the roads and byways the members traveled will connect them to Denver. Though predominantly of African-American ancestry, the RMWSQG celebrates ethnic diversity in membership, as well as in the many different patterns displayed in their quilts. For information about the guild visit their website http://www.washonaji.org/
