Adult Coloring Club
Coloring isn't just for kids. In fact, adult coloring is said to enhance a person’s mood, reduce anxiety, and relieve stress. Health benefits also include exercising fine motor skills and training the brain to focus. If you are looking for a simple and fun way to have more color and creativity in your life, our Adult Coloring Club is the group for you. No art experience necessary! Bring your own coloring book or coloring pages, colored pencils, markers, or crayons. We'll have a few supplies on hand, including some detailed coloring pages.
