COLORS: Adult Coloring Program

Friday, October 26, 2018, 12:00 pm

Coloring can be an incredibly calming and stress relieving activity; it's a simple way to connect with one's creativity and relieve daily anxiety. Just like meditation, coloring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate worry.  Stop in every Friday at noon and discover why this trend has taken off. Coloring pages and materials will be provided.
