Colouring in Kingston was a community-based project created and managed by Josephine Miller and Izzi Toovey who collaborated with The Community Brain, as part of SHEDx Growing Ideas in Tolworth. Both students studied Art Direction BA at Kingston School of Art where the project launched.
Launched in May 2020, it was something for all the family to get involved in during the first UK lockdown. Josephine Miller and Izzi Toovey collaborated with young artists in the Kingston borough providing a series of drawing challenges. The students digitally transformed these drawings with the aim to display the collaborative artwork into the community in the future.
The project was designed to spark a conversation amongst the community, celebrating young creative talent.
How to get involved
The local community were invited to download a creative package full of different objects to draw, and Izzi and Josephine transformed those drawings digitally, giving young people the opportunity to have their work displayed in the community.
Due to lockdown, an online gallery was hosted through the Instagram page @colouringinkingston showcasing the submissions produced and digital transformations!
