It seems that in France, it`s very popular for adults to use colouring books to de-stress!
Which do you like best? Give it a “like” if it’s your fave! Email me your Klondike Colours art, and I’ll add it to the gallery. (Or if yours is here and unattributed, please, let me know.)
There are many more photos to come, and a few videos… but for your first glance, below we have one of our young volunteers sporting his Klondike Colours tshirt, and showing off his coloured page! This young man was our excellent Colouring Station Supervisor, and did a bang up job with that and many other launch tasks… and he did a great job colouring to boot! Thanks Bo!
You are cordially invited to join us on Sunday, May 18th for the launch of Klondike Colours! For those in Dawson City, this is your one and only chance to get your copy of Klondike Colours personally signed by the artist, so please do drop by and say hi!
Andrée Bélanger will also be exhibiting her newest artwork.
As a special treat, storyteller Marie-Claude Dufresne will be joining us at about 5:30pm. She will be debuting a special new story for this select audience!
Thank you to all who voted! Here, for your sneak-a-peek viewing pleasure is “dog parking” from Klondike Colours!
And they look BEAUTIFUL. There is much squeeing and jumping around. I cannot wait for everyone to see them!
Klondike Colours is a colouring book like no other. Printed on high quality art paper, the carefully crafted images seamlessly weave together modern and iconic gold-rush era scenes. It’s like seeing the ghosts of the Dawson-that-was in the midst of Dawson-that-is! All of time exists in the same time and place…for your colouring pleasure.
Visual artist Andrée Bélanger loves history and art, and relishes epic wilderness and quirky colours of people and places, especially Dawson City. Originally from the Lower St. Lawrence Valley in Quebec, she studied art at the Yukon School of Visual Arts in Dawson City in 2012/13. A citizen of the world, you will find her at home anywhere she can observe the interesting animals, people and civilizations that so fascinate her and inform her artistic discipline.
Klondike Colours will be available in May 2014 at fine bookstores in the Yukon, or directly from the publisher.
Limited edition hand-bound version: $20.00.
