Date: Wednesday, November 25, 2020

This is an annual fundraising project to support mental health. The book is made up of art drawn by artists from and/or living in Ottawa, and is compiled into a colouring book. Proceeds from the colouring book sales support three non-profit causes:

 

1) A.R.T. in Action Ottawa: Who provide free art workshops for youth with multiple barriers,

2) CHEO YouthNet Pens and Paint: An art-based program that focuses on coping with stress and understanding mental health through visual arts and creative writing,

3) The Cultural Arts Studio: Dedicated to the sharing and preservation of Afro-Caribbean culture through dance, wellness and community programs.

This project began in 2016 by Christine Kumchy, an occupational therapist. It is a labour of love designed to bring artists and people together for mental health.
