    NOTE: This in-person program will take place each Wednesday from 1-2 pm at Pawling Recreation.

    Coloring is more than being creative, it’s a very relaxing activity that has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

    Each week we’ll be coloring a new mandala design, while also enjoying a good round of conversation. You can use the mandala design we’ve selected or download free designs of your choice from the link below.

    You don’t have to have a degree in art to participate…just some paper and color pencils.

    Please join us. Relax and connect with like-minded people, and add a burst of color to your day!

    All supplies will be provided.
