It's been a relaxing trend. Coloring, yes coloring, made a splash with adults.
Coloring books with sophisticated designs were created for adults yearning for an easy creative outlet with no rules.
The relaxing fad made its way downtown with Home and Garden Treasures and Barrel of Books and Games among the local shops that introduced adult coloring books into their product mix over the years.
Barrel of Books and Games hosts a popular, free adult coloring night when participants can bring their own wine or beer. It's a fun night to get together with friends or to come stag and meet new ones. Coloring books are always available for purchase. The next coloring night is Oct. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Another downtown venue for those wanting to partake in the stress-free endeavor is the Modernism Museum. This fall it's hosting an hour of adult coloring on Serenity Saturdays at 11 a.m. The cost is five dollars.
