The Allure of coloring

Are you looking for a creative outlet while you shelter in place?

Introducing...the Allure of Coloring! Interact with The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China from the comfort of your living room through a special series of coloring challenges. Each week, we will share a new coloring page adapted from a work of art from the Smart Museum and Wrightwood 659’s presentation of The Allure of Matter. This week’s sheet is inspired by Gu Dexin’s room-sized installation of melted plastic.

Be creative—when it comes to coloring, there are no wrong answers! Print the sheets out and use coloring tools like pencils or crayons, cut up an old magazine and make a collage, or use a digital coloring app on your device. If you post your creations to social media, be sure to include the hashtag #theallureofcoloring so we can find your work and share it with the world!
