ColorATL combines the power of creative activity with the vast art culture of Atlanta to benefit those in difficult circumstances. For years, members of the ColorATL team have utilized creative activity in order to decrease stress, anxiety, and despair - and cultivate peace, joy, and hope. Something indescribably positive happens when someone grabs a pencil or paintbrush and gets out what has been pent-up inside of them.
We believe all should have access to the stress-relieving, therapeutic benefits of creativity. For every coloring book purchased, ColorATL will personally deliver a coloring book to someone facing hardship at one of our local, partnering health facilities and social impact organizations - Cancer centers, health and hospice homes, transitional facilities, homeless shelters, recuperative-care centers, and more.
Why coloring books?
With all the breakthrough we constantly see with therapeutic arts, the biggest hurdle remains: many self-proclaimed "non-artists" stare at a blank canvas and feel intimidated to begin.
This is why adult coloring books are so awesome: they provide an overall structure, yet allow for personal freedom within. Which is proven to be healthy for the mind and spirit.
Partnering organizations currently include The Gateway Center, Mercy Care, Winship Cancer Institute, ReMergeATL, and The Women's Transitional Center. We also intend to formalize 5-7 more partnerships with various organizations in Atlanta whose communities may benefit from this initiative.
100% of the profits from ColorATL will go to support therapeutic art programs in local health facilities and social impact organizations in and around our city.
