Volume 1 of ColorVSU - Available Now!

Our concept is simple; ColorVSU – An Adult/Artist Coloring Book designed by students, current and emeritus faculty, and alumni. The earnings from ColorVSU support scholarships within the Department of Art & Design, which provides financial assistance to students within the BA/BFA programs in Art, Art Education, and Interior Design. Your support is an enduring gift that positively affects our students, and immeasurably changes individual lives.

ColorVSU is a platform for our community to intimately connect with artists while personally experiencing the benefits of creative activity. Each page was created by an artist at VSU or connected with VSU. 

Inspired by William Massey, 2012 VSU Alumni - William founded ColorATL, “a platform for the community of Atlanta to intimately connect with local art while experiencing the benefits of creative activity.  Volume 1 of ColorATL Coloring Book features 45 of Atlanta’s best artists- experience the joy and stress relief of creativity while personally connecting with an epic variety of local art.”
