We had a fabulous time communing over coloring this last weekend at the St Johns Living Well center. Wonderful experiences of coloring and conversation transpired. I offered new ideas for seasoned colorists and a little touch of color theory for newbies. I love how the room became zen like quiet for a time, the participants were quite engaged in their creative expressions. Thank you to the St Johns Living Well store for hosting this event. They are super people and have lots of fun creative event to come.
If you missed this one and want to join in the coloring community. I have another event coming up at the New Renaissance Book shop. Call ahead to reserve your spot.
