A Lot of Local Color

For the last few years, Encore’s June issue has had the recurring theme of “See Your Town Like a Tourist,” with articles on places, people and events in our own backyard that we residents might just take for granted. This year, cognizant of us all remaining in or slightly emerging from our COVID-19 cocoons, Encore invites readers to see our community through their own eyes with our adult coloring pages.

Admit it, during the stay-at-home restrictions you might have done a few jigsaw puzzles or colored a few pictures. It was relaxing, wasn’t it? It’s fun to exercise those creative, colorful impulses you’ve repressed since childhood. So keep
doing it.

This issue offers coloring pages reflecting scenes from Kalamazoo as well as images that go with our “See Your Town Like a Tourist” stories. While glossy, the pages are well suited for coloring with markers, colored pencils or crayons. (We recommend markers to really make your pictures frame-worthy.) So get out your Crayola 64-pack and go to town.
