In a meaningful collaboration, Lighthouse has partnered with Aussie artists to distribute FREE colouring pages for you and your family to enjoy while social distancing at home.
These one-off illustrations have been a labour of love so are free to download, with their intricate patterns and designs making them an ideal stress-relief and mindfulness activity for all ages. We hope that they can take you back to the days of finger-paints and carefree playing with colour- when let’s face it, life seemed a little simpler.
At Lighthouse, colouring is just one of the many activities we do with our kids who need to start with play and art therapy to help them feel safe, particularly in times of uncertainty. As we sit beside guarded and withdrawn children, colouring together, we see them be able to relax, start to trust and eventually express their emotions.
This week you’ll be able to access the first 12 drawings in the series, so get your crayons, pencils and paints ready. Just like our young people, let’s allow ourselves to open up and let our imaginations take over for a while. When you do put your ‘pen to paper’, we hope that you feel a sense of connectedness to one another in our Lighthouse community, even though we’re apart.
We’ll be releasing new sheets over the coming weeks from the following amazing artists:
Bianca Cash, Carla Adams, Cat Rabbit, Charlotte Alldis, Gemma Flack, Ghostpatrol, Helen McCullagh, Hilary Green, Indira Fernando, Jasmine Mansbridge, Krissy Agostini, Megan McKean, Pey Chi, Yippy Whippy, Beci Orpin, Claire Johnson, Frances Cannon , Laura Blythman, Martina Martian, Minna Gilligan, Nathan Nankervis and Taiki One.
Thank you again to each and every artist for getting involved in this project and helping us raise awareness for Lighthouse. Your act of kindness will help us to find a moment of calmness- lightening up our spirits and bringing a bit of colour in to these seemingly dark days.
Please enjoy the colouring pages. Remember to follow and tag both Lighthouse (@lighthousefoundation) and the artists on social media when sharing any of the works. We would love everyone to spread the love by sharing their completed artworks to their own social pages using the hashtag #Lighthousefoundation.
Thank you for taking part in ‘The Art of Kindness’.
