The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies along with alumni UBC are seeking art submissions for Colour My UBCO 2022. Color My UBCO was produced for Homecoming 2021, and featured original artwork by students, alumni and the UBCO community under the theme of the Spirit of the Okanagan. Art therapy is used for meditation and as a relaxation technique, and coloring books are a fun way to help adults destress and relax, and improve mental health and wellbeing.
UBC Okanagan student, alumni, staff and faculty artists of all levels are invited to submit an original work for a colouring book page in any style (remembering that is should be an outline of an image that can be coloured in!) Submissions may be a re-creation of an existing work, or a new piece for this book. From personal sketchbook drawings, pop art designs, portraits, landscapes, we want to see your creativity and what the Okanagan means to you.
- Must be created by a UBC Okanagan student or alumni from any program or degree.
- Size: 8.5”x11”
- File type: ai, eps, psd, tiff or jpg
- Resolution: vector or 300 DPI
If you do not have access to a high-resolution scanner, you can deliver or mail your artwork with a postage-paid return envelope to:
Development and Alumni Engagement
1138 Alumni Avenue
Kelowna, BC V1V 1V7
The coloring books will available at UBC Okanagan Homecoming (September 23-24, 2022) celebrations. Final pieces will be selected by a Selection Committee. Featured artists will receive a complimentary copy of the colouring book.
Deadline for submissions: July 20, 2022
