We’re all looking for ways to de-stress right now.
Why not pull out a box of crayons and give coloring, a treasured childhood pastime, a try?
Local publication The Pitch announced a collaboration with 60+ artists to create Coloring KC, a digital coloring book filled with iconic images celebrating Kansas City. There are two volumes to Coloring KC, each with 30 pages of local treasures just waiting to be colored. Think: jazz musicians, plates heaped with BBQ, fountains, shuttlecocks, the Kansas City skyline and even cows – all things that make up the unique fabric of our city.
Research indicates adult coloring is a good stress buster and kids at home could surely use some creative entertainment.
The book is being sold online for $20 per volume, or as a set for $35. Proceeds go to support The Pitch and participating local artists. Once purchased, the books are emailed to you within a few hours.
According to The Pitch’s announcement, contributing artists include:
- Vu Radley, Made Mobb Creative Director
- Scribe, muralist and staff artist at Children’s Mercy Hospital (his proceeds from the book go to Children’s Mercy Child Life Program)
- Patrick Mullin and Eric McLaughlin, Digital Marketing Manager and beer brander of Boulevard Brewing Company
- Kelsey Borch of Oddities Prints
- Additional submissions from the Grassland Heritage Foundation, The Arts Asylum, Kansas City Art Institute students and KC Landmarks Project.
