BBAC Coloring Book!

We are looking for artwork to put into a coloring book for adults

Deadline for Artwork: August 25th

Proceeds to benefit the BBAC and its programs

The booklet will be an 8 by 10 (drawings to fit that size or can be resized to fit) and the drawings can be either portrait or landscape format.

...if you haven't seen one of these, you can see examples of them on line.  It would be great to have one of these books represent the beauty of nature in our area.  Proceeds of the sales would go to BBAC for funding our shows and adding to our scholarship fund.  If you would like to donate a line drawing for the coloring book or have any questions, please contact

Remember any of your paintings or photographs can be transformed into a line drawing!

Each drawing will credit the artist. A great way to advertise!

We would like to have this booklet for sale over the Labor Day weekend so please send your artwork in today! Go to:
