TWIN FALLS | Coloring can alleviate stress, anxiety and is a creative trend many adults are embracing.
Now that outlet will go toward helping others.
Hands On, a Twin Falls paint-your-own-pottery shop, will hold a coloring party from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
The tiles will be donated to the future Behavioral Health Crisis Center in Twin Falls. The intention is to install the tiles as a wall mosaic at the new center.
"It’s very relaxing when you actually get to sit down and paint something," said Robin Dober, owner of Hands On. “You can forget about all the hustle and bustle at work or at home and just enjoy the moment.”
At the Coloring Party, participants can paint ceramic tiles which have a pre-drawn design on them in the style of a coloring book page. Tiles are $10 each and all have a whimsical design on them so all that participants need to do is simply add a little color. For those who are unable to attend the event Wednesday, Hands On will be offering the tiles throughout May. In exchange, you will receive free studio time to paint something for yourself. People can also donate $10 and have a Hands On studio assistant paint a tile for you.
