About The KRS Coloring Book
The Kindness Rocks & Smiles Community Project™ is a multimedia, community-based art project that along with this coloring book is a space where everyone is welcome and appreciated, as both extraordinary individuals of all ages and as members of a community coming together. And in the challenging glare of the Covid-19 Pandemic, this mission of unity and reconnecting as a community—local, national, and global—is especially needed more than ever before.
The Kindness Rocks & Smiles Community Project™ Coloring Book was created especially for YOU—no matter your age or where you are along life’s journey.
You may have just come into this amazing world and your family and friends will fill these pages with love and smiles for you to enjoy looking at one day or perhaps you’ve triumphantly forged past the century mark into your most brilliant days yet. Or, maybe you are traveling the wonderfully windy pathways in-between, where we discover our purposes and navigate our challenges and successes—individually and together in community.
For The Kindness Rocks & Smiles Community Project™ Coloring Book, John Schlimm drew each of the faces awaiting smiles and any other emotions and details you’d like to add, and Megan Murphy drew the rocks awaiting personalized messages of kindness and any other notes to self and designs you wish to add to them. And the in-between space is yours to do or not do with whatever you wish—embellish it with even more of your unique personality or simply find peace and simplicity there.
You can enjoy the colorful journey through these pages solo or with gathered groups of family and friends, and even strangers you meet along the way. You may choose to keep this book in a cherished place to reflect back upon, or you may decide to gift completed pages, or the entire book itself after you have brought it full circle into living color, to special loved ones or maybe as anonymous gifts of hope left throughout your community for others to find and be uplifted when they most need it.
