A portion of the proceeds from each coloring book will benefit an Albuquerque nonprofit organization that help children in situations of domestic violence, poverty, or homelessness.
The coloring book will not only showcase artists’ work, but since children are the target market for the book, it provides a unique, plausible way for children to help children.
A series of community artist workshops will be scheduled once the coloring book is in production.
How to Submit:
1. Select an image from the list of cards and interpret it with your own style and imagination. Your image will be printed in black and white, so please consider high contrast drawing materials/media.
2. Develop a fun rhyme or verse to accompany your image. Here are some examples:
EL DIABLITO (The Little Devil): “Pórtate bien cuatito, si no te lleva el coloradito.” “Be good, or you will meet the little red guy.”
LA PERA (The Pear) “El que espera, desespera.” “He who waits, despairs.”
3. Please use our Loteria template to ensure that your ratio is accurate and that you have enough space for the title of your image and a whimsical rhyme or verse!
