  • Cleveland-Lorain-Elyria, OH (1888PressRelease) November 03, 2009 - The party takes place at The Children’s Museum of Cleveland, 10730 Euclid Avenue in University Circle, on Saturday, November 7, 2009 between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

    Activities taking place at this family-friendly fun event include the chance to meet and draw with student artists from the Cleveland Institute of Art, designers of the new coloring books. In addition, you will have the opportunity to make your own animal sock puppet, decorate your very own bobble head dog, have your face painted and get a tattoo! Snacks, drinks, awesome door prizes and FREE goody bags containing a coloring book and Faber-Castell art supplies (while supplies last) will also be provided – all INCLUDED FREE with your paid Museum admission or membership!

    The most creative coloring books ever, Creativity for Kids’ Coloring & ARTivity Books - 18 titles with a wide variety of themes from Wild & Wooly Animals, to Let’s Pretend, and Amazing Creatures of the Sea – have something for every child age 3 and up to enjoy. What makes these coloring books special? Exceptional features such as spiral binding so the pages lay flat for easy coloring, high quality paper, and activities such as mix & match and dot-to-dot to enrich the experience. But most importantly, the Coloring & ARTivity Books contain original designs from students at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Under the direction of Phyllis Brody, Co-Founder of Creativity for Kids®, this collaborative venture blends the company’s product development expertise with the students’ design talents, resulting in these truly unique coloring books.

    The Children’s Museum of Cleveland was selected by Faber-Castell as the perfect place for the Coloring & ARTivity Book launch party for two reasons: Phyllis Brody was part of the coalition that developed the Museum in the early 1980’s and later served as President of the Board of Trustees, and the Museum’s commitment to providing hands-on, interactive learning experiences for young children matches well with Creativity for Kids’ mission to provide children with experiences that stimulate and encourage their natural creativity. There is also the shared belief that inspiring children to express themselves creatively through art and play is a crucial component of the developmental process. The Cleveland Institute of Art provides the opportunity for that expression to continue at the college level, and beyond, encouraging students to become professional artists and work in creative fields.

    Creativity for Kids has provided imaginative, high quality, innovative arts and crafts products for children for more than 30 years. Today our products are available all over the world, giving children the opportunity to create, pretend, and play in imaginative ways that encourage self-expression.
