Colouring Anyone?


The Cowichan Valley Arts Council (CVAC) is excited to announce a new venture! We’ll be launching our very own colouring book, Colour the Cowichan Valley in the spring of 2016. It’s all about unlocking your creative potential, honing your concentration, and relaxing. If concentration and relaxation seem counter-intuitive, CVAC invites you try colouring. No longer a pastime for children, the therapeutic value of colouring is a powerful antidote to our busy lives. Choosing colours and applying them with a repetitive motion achieves a state of mindful focus that stays with you long after you’ve finished.

At CVAC, we love this idea. There’s the creative spark and there’s the getting lost in the process of bringing it to life. So we are asking our members to create drawings and we are inviting the Valley to get lost in the process of colouring them. We think it’s going to be a wonderful collaboration that celebrates everything CVAC holds dear: art, beauty, and our wonderful community!

Watch this space for updates. Meanwhile sharpen your pencils!
