Coloring for Resiliency: An All-Ages Event

Where to you get your strength? In this workshop, artist and author Rhea Ewing encourages participants of all ages to create their own vision of what it means to be a strong and resilient human being. After a short group activity, participants will be given art supplies, blank paper, and pages from "Seven Strengths: A Coloring and Activity Book for Resiliency" to meditate on themes of compassion, joy, and connection.

Rhea Ewing is a Madison-based artist and an alumnus of UW-Baraboo/Sauk and UW-Madison. A transplant to the Midwest, Rhea calls Wisconsin “the first place that felt like home” and tries to capture that sense of place in their work. Rhea also calls upon the personal and political themes of living with a queer identity in the Midwest, finding spiritual connections to the natural world, and building safe spaces for all people. The value of art, by their reasoning, is the ability to create connections, question assumptions, and inspire others to do the same.
