Colouring Book City: Hemi and the Whale

Friday 20 January




Fri 20 January, 15:00-17:00


Grey Street, Tauranga

Be part of Colouring Book C.I.T.Y as we decorate a private carpark opposite Books A Plenty in conjunction with Downtown Tauranga

Have you ever helped or rescued a person or animal? Come ready to draw those memories and hear our feature book, 'Hemi and the Whale' by Ron Bacon, which will inspire our artwork for this event. 

Prior to the start of the event, a chalk outline will be painted on the pavement outside the bookshop. From 3pm the public are invited to finish the artwork and colour it in with chalk sponsored by Poppa's Chalk! You'll enjoy book readings of the feature book, get a special sticker (limited to first 100), be in to win spot prizes for participation and there's a grand prize for the longest colourer!
