Local Lines: A collaborative coloring book by local artists

Hello, community!

The mission of UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine (AIM) is for every person, regardless of illness, disability, or perceived disadvantage, to have access to the arts and realize their creative potential. We aim to be a model for the incorporation of the arts into healthcare by using the arts to enhance the physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing of our patients, their visitors, and staff.

We also promote health and wellness through the arts in the greater Gainesville area, and are thrilled to have collaborated on such a project as this free coloring book. We’d like to thank all the local artists who contributed to this publication. Their generosity in sharing their incredible talents speaks to the heart, soul, and beauty of our community.

Special thanks to the State of Florida, and our community partner, 352Creates.
