When the going gets tough, real women (and men) COLOR! Coloring not only brings back happy memories of childhood; it promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation. The act of coloring engages your hands as well as your mind, releasing serotonin… and that makes you HAPPY!

Join other creatively minded community members, bring your girlfriends or book club for a unique evening inspired by the new trend of therapeutic coloring. We’ll provide the coloring books, colored pencils and a few book recommendations that escape the ordinary from two members of our staff: Sarah Taylor and Lisa Ekelman.
