An initiative of the Penticton & District Community Arts Council’s Arts Matter/Arts Matter Online program, local artists were invited to submit colouring pages towards a seasonal colouring book. Each artist was able to submit 2 winter holiday-themed designs for the collection which was to be printed for free distribution to a number of community groups and organizations as well as available free for download from the PDCAC website.
PDCAC, which had initially planned for around 200 print copies, distributed 400 Craft Packs to the community in December 2020, each including a printed Holiday Cheer Colouring Book. In total, 17 local artists contributed to the project, with 22 designs included in the limited-run print version, and 34 designs in the expanded downloadable version.
I contributed 2 colouring page designs to Holiday Cheer 2020. Printed versions include one of my designs on page 11, while both of my designs can be found within the expanded version on pages 22 and 23. Elements from both of my designs were chosen to be incorporated into the book’s front cover!
