The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies along with alumni UBC are seeking art submissions for the UBC Okanagan Coloring Book. 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 and alumni artists of all levels are invited to submit an original work for a colouring book page in any style within the UBCO Homecoming 2021 theme Spirit of Okanagan. 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 be launching as part of UBC Okanagan Homecoming (September 24-25, 2021) celebrations and will be available for sale with all proceeds benefiting the UBCO Alumni Bursary Fund supporting students. Final pieces will be selected by a Selection Committee. Featured artists will receive a complimentary copy of the colouring book.
Deadline for submissions: May 31, 2021
By submitting artwork, the submitter agrees they own the right to recreate or reproduce the piece.
