Event Details

Talk about an adventure in your own back yard! Two Hands Paperie is delighted to offer a workshop with artist John Aaron, author (and of course illustrator) of Color Me Boulder: A Coloring Book of the City’s Iconic Architecture. His original hand-drawn images, which have been transformed into pages for coloring, celebrate the history of Boulder’s oldest homes. There’s a certain eccentric whimsy to his drawings that brings the landmark buildings to life. That, and his little anecdotes for each one, which have been thoroughly researched and vetted for accuracy. His impish humor is in full play! To begin the class, John will lead participants on a re more wonderful tales about Boulder and its distinctive architecture along the way! Besides being an artist, he is a conswalking tour of four of the houses from the book, which are all conveniently located within a 2-block radius of Two Hands Paperie. Then it’s back to the store for a coloring session in your personal copy of Color Me Boulder. John will first give a demonstration of how to blend colored pens and pencils to achieve different effects, then it’s up to you to decide on a palette as you work with the supplies provided. We’re sure John will shaummate storyteller.
