TODAY IS COLOURING BOOK DAY
There is magic between the covers of a colouring book, a type of magic that can take us away and walk us into a million worlds. Further, colouring books make artists of us all, whether we decide to be Rembrandt with his realistic colours and patterns, or Picasso with his odd cubist designs and surreal colors. Colouring Book Day encourages us to get back to the days of our youth, and dive between the pages of a colouring book.
