Self-isolate with joy with these fun colouring initiatives


Revisit your childhood with these fun colouring initiatives for grown-ups

Get your crayons out

By ELLE team  May 13th, 2020

Being amid a pandemic can take a toll on anyone’s mental wellbeing. But, there’s one stress-relieving activity that anyone can do at home (no, we’re not talking about watching Netflix). It’s colouring. There are many sketching books and colouring initiatives there that’ll help you get your zen on. It’s one of the few analogue activities that can help you channel your inner creativity. It’s time to revisit your childhood so make sure you get that box of colours from the back of your closet now. We have three recommendations to get you started!

Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo’s Sandra Choi wants you to get creative. Sketch your ultimate fantasy shoe and your sketch could be chosen by Sandra to be brought to life as part of an exclusive capsule of five styles in a forthcoming collection. Sandra will select the top 10 designs, and from there, Jimmy Choo’s Instagram followers will vote for their top 5. Those winners will then see their sketches developed into a capsule collection, and the proceeds from sales will be donated to charity.

Annie Morris

Based in London, British artist Annie Morris’ work takes inspiration from her life experiences through painting, drawing and sculpture. She is best known for pieces that combine drawing and ready-made sculptures. Morris has now turned some of her art into a fun sketching book, which anyone can download for free from www.firstsite.uk.
