Color us excited!!
courageous heARTS is thrilled to announce the first edition of Color Me Courageous, our annual coloring book! This year we're highlighting some of your favorite Twin Cities locations through the unique eyes and style of our youth artists (and a couple important adults.) All artwork for the book has been hand-drawn by artists of all, and we’re including a special spot for you to create your own masterpiece!
Check out images and updates below!
Your purchase provides stipends for our Creative Community Apprentices, youth ages 16-24 who staff our studio. During their nine-month apprenticeship, youth learn about heARTS' four core approaches: expressive arts, restorative practices, people-centered approaches, and trauma-informed care.
Double Your Impact
In addition to purchasing coloring books for friends and family, you can double your impact by donating coloring books to three local organizations providing critical support to youth and families here in the Twin Cities area:
- Ronald McDonald House
- Perspectives, Inc
A Bright & Bold Thank You
Big thanks to the Colonnade Group of Thrivent Financial for sponsoring the debut edition of Color Me Courageous! Also, shout out to Anchor Paper for providing paper for the project at cost.
It's at the printers - here's our proof! December 12, 2018
Coloring books are at the printer and we are just waiting to hear when they will be done! We've learned alot through this process-- including what kind of paper NOT to order! Check out the video below for a preview of our proof. After making a few adjustments, we are sure you will love the end result.
Once we have books in hand, we would like to work on getting them into local stores. If you happen to have any connections - please let us know!
Just a reminder, we will not be able to guarantee mail delivery by Christmas but will have them available for purchase at the studio and at a couple upcoming community events before the holidays.
