Local artist Lenka Vodicka will host the sixth Nevada County Coloring Club, in collaboration with the Miners Foundry Cultural Center, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 8 at DANK Gallery, 325 Spring St., Nevada City.

The Nevada County Coloring Club is a monthly event for adults that embraces one of the hottest trends in creative relaxation and expression.

This is not your kid’s coloring club. Professional quality coloring materials and high-end pages, as well as a mimosa and elegant pastries are included in the price. There is a limit to how many people can attend to ensure the event is comfortable, so advance reservations are recommended.

“We hope to encourage an elevated experience with details and presentation. Coloring Club is a haven, a little escape from chores and daily routines,” said Vodicka.

“This is a perfect fit for our new gallery space where DANK is located,” adds Gretchen Bond, executive director of the Miners Foundry. “Many members of DANK as well as the Foundry staff have known Lenka as a teacher at Nevada City School of the Arts and have seen the way she infuses projects with magic for the kids. Being able to offer this type of event to adults and support Lenka’s vision is a special way to share this beautiful space.”

As a published author, seasoned photographer, and creative leader, Vodicka is ready to embrace the new role of full-time artist.

“It is a lot of work but I find pursuing my passions gives me the energy to push ideas forward,” she said. “Working with the Foundry and getting support from DANK has helped put my ideas into action. I can’t wait to share the beautiful coloring books I’ve found.”

Finding the books was no easy task, many are sold out with the national attention adult coloring has generated Not only it is a great way to relax with friends, but it has also been shown to have health benefits.

Tickets are $20 and are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at BriarPatch Co-Op. Ticketing fees may apply. More info at http://www.minersfoundry.org.
