Submit art to the third edition of the Ottawa Colouring Book For Anyone!

It’s that time of year again, when our friend Christine Kumchy dedicates her time to helping A.R.T. In Action with the help of many artists and non-artists alike.

What is the Ottawa Colouring Book For Anyone?

It is a colouring book that helps to fundraise for free art programs for youth facing barriers in Ottawa and Arviat Nunavut. Artists submit their art work and receive recognition for participating in a good cause. This is the third book that has been published with the help of multiple artists, sponsors and supporters.

Cool! How do I help?

We are no longer accepting submissions for the Third Colouring Book For Anyone. We’ll be opening submissions for the Fourth one soon.

If you’d like to order the third edition or any of the first two, you can do so here.
