Colouring workshop at Parksville library

The colouring book shows depictions of B.C.'s coast

Join Yvonne Maximchuk as she celebrates the release of her new adult colouring book, Colour the British Columbia Coast with a drop-in colouring workshop and book signing.

The event will take place at the Parksville branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library (100 Jensen Ave. E, Parksville) on Thursday, July 14 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Maximchuk will colour with attendees, offer colouring advice and sign books. Basic colouring materials will be provided, and books will be available for sale.

Yvonne Maximchuk is known for her depictions of the land, sea and wildlife, and in Colour the British Columbia Coast, she has created 40 original illustrations for everyone to enjoy. From the burnt-orange bark of the Arbutus trees and jewel-green ferns, to the vibrant ochre sea star and the gradated hues of magical sunsets, the colours of British Columbia’s coast have long inspired painters. 
Colour the British Columbia Coast is printed on high-quality art paper with perforated pages for easy removal, so colourists can capture the beauty of the BC Coast with anything from pencil crayons and pastels to felt markers and watercolour paints. The images are inspired by the infinite material of the West Coast, including floathouses and boats, grizzlies and whales, misty vistas and undersea creatures. Each illustration is accompanied by an in-depth caption describing the scene as well as colouring tips from the artist, making this the book for anyone looking to unwind and discover their creative side—and Coastal BC.

Maximchuk is a life-long working artist, illustrator and author.

For more information about this event, please contact the Parksville branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library at 250-248-3841. Admission is free and all are welcome, but this is an adult-focused event.
