#CreateUpPompey

Our goal is to create a collaborative and accessible art project for the people of Portsmouth.

The #CreateUpPompey Community Artist Colouring Book enables you to discover some of Portsmouth’s brilliant artists, designers and illustrators, whils participating yourself by sharing your own colourful versions of the artists work.

Artwork has kindly been donated by many different Portsmouth artists, designers and illustrators, ready to be coloured in, cut out and shared in your windows and online.

Portsmouth Creates has provided over 1500 free art packs (which include pencils, sharpener and this colouring book) and it is available to download here (PDF) for free to print at home.

The idea was for Portsmouth’s adults and children alike to enjoy; either as mindfulness exercise (for all ages) or for children and families to have an additional activity.

We’d love you to post your coloured-in pages on social media using #CreateUpPompey

We’ll try to share as many of them as we can on our social media channels.

Then why not put your coloured artwork up in your window for everyone to see!

So why not share them in your windows and online to celebrate both your creativity and our cities creativity!

In these unusual and challenging times, we hope that this art pack reminds us all to dream, hope, aspire – and believe #CreateUpPompey
