Face it, we all need a little more joy right now. And the best way to bring color back into our lives — local art!

Colorado Publishing House has joined with local artists to produce the first coloring book featuring all the things we love about the Pikes Peak region. 

Here’s how it works. Your support of our coloring book not only helps our local arts community, it helps support local, independent journalism. In today’s environment, neither can survive without interested, involved, committed support. We will split the proceeds from the coloring book with the artists who created the pages. 

AND there’s something in it for you too!

We are offering prizes to the best coloring projects! Upload them HERE (coming soon) and we will give a $25 gift card to a local restaurant to the very best coloring pages!

The best — as judged by our staff — in each of the following categories: 

- 3 to 6 year olds
- 6-10 year olds
- 10-15 year olds
- 15-20 year olds
- over 20 

Visit us at HERE (coming soon) to tell us which pages drawn by our local artists you considered BEST IN SHOW! The winner will be grace the cover of the Indy in a future edition.

Don't forget, there are huge mental health benefits from coloring – less stress, more fun. It’s exactly what Colorado Springs needs right now!
