Color a Bell


Coloring sheet printout, colored pencils, crayons, markers

Set aside some time for creative expression and peaceful meditation with a coloring sheet designed by National Bell Festival artist-in-residence, Cris Clapp Logan. Each original black ink illustration is ready for you to unleash your colorful imagination.

Perfect for every skill level, and with a beautiful design that draws inspiration from the bells and bell towers that ring out overhead on New Year's Day, the pages can be brought to life using pens, markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
