Imagine your artwork colored by thousands of hospital patients each week!
The Gifts of Art Program is seeking submissions of original art drawings for individual pages in a new coloring book for adult patients and guests at the University of Michigan Hospitals. The theme for this coloring book is “I’D RATHER BE…” and comes directly from our patients who told us they wanted to color images of places they would rather be than in a hospital, things they would rather be doing, and activities that would transport them to a happier time and place.
Black & white line drawings for all skill levels and interests are welcome – from drawings with large, simple spaces that adult first timers could enjoy, to smaller intricate designs for experienced doodlers.
To view the full prospectus and to submit images for consideration, please visit www.michiganmedicinegiftsofart.submittable.com/submit/5b50427f-bdc1-43ca-9d27-16078b905c32/call-for-coloring-book-art-gifts-of-art-program-michigan-medicine-univers .
