Sharpen your colored pencils! #ColorOurCollections is back for 2017! During this event, cultural institutions from around the world will provide inspiration and coloring sheets for artists of all ages to fill in. Colorers can share their creations on social media by tagging the organization and using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. To celebrate, download one (or both!) coloring packets we've created based on images in our collection. Shade in a few sea shells, diatom cells or fancy French fashion plates. Share your creations via social media and tag us (@SILibraries on Twitter and Instagram). We can’t wait to see what vibrant combinations you come up with.
Coloring packets are available as downloadable .pdf files below or through the following links:
Want even more coloring fodder? See the Biodiversity Hertiage Library's Color Our Collection page to download their two free coloring books.
If you're in need of coloring inspiration, don't forget to check out Color in a New Light, our newest exhibition which just happens to be focused on the subject.
