Sip & Scribble
Nine of the 20 books on Amazon’s current bestseller list contain few words and belong to a genre that didn’t exist two years ago. Welcome to the biggest publishing craze of the year: coloring books for adults. More than 2,000 have hit stands since 2013 and the genre’s two biggest bestsellers, “Secret Garden” and “Enchanted Forest,” have sold a combined 13.5 million copies in 50 countries. “It’s kind of a way of being creative without the stress of too much creativity. You’re not stressing yourself out as much as you would if you were to draw from scratch, but you’re still getting some of the relaxing qualities of creating,” says Peter Gray, professor of psychology at Boston College.
Pick up a few coloring books, pencils and/or crayons at Walmart, Michael’s or Target – or find a few online to print – grab your favorite beverage and head to The Studio to hang out, enjoy each other’s company and try a little “art therapy” with friends. We’ll have some light beverages & snacks available and a few coloring supplies too if you need them.
