Color Outside the Lines Event at the Art Library!
In the 21st century, a resurgence in coloring has swept the nation. Coloring books are no longer the exclusive domain of children. Many authors are creating coloring books that speak to adult audiences and public and academic libraries across the nation are hosting coloring events, commonly known as stressbusters. Coloring books are traditionally a medium for relaxation or artistic expression, but they are increasingly being used for education. This is where the Rutgers University Art Library Coloring Book comes in…
Art librarian Megan Lotts illustrated and wrote the Art Library Coloring Book to connect in a creative and fun way with students and to educate individuals about the resources and possibilities available at the Rutgers University Art Library. The coloring book will be released at a free, public pop-up making event at the Art Library on Monday, October 3, 2016, from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. The Art Library plans to distribute a limited run of 500 booklets and crayons to students, faculty, and staff this fall semester, so we encourage everyone to stop by and pick up a copy soon.
Date: Monday, October 03, 2016, 4 PM- 5 PM Location: Rutgers University Art Library, CAC Contact: Megan Lotts, Art Librarian at email@example.com or call 848-932-7189
