NEWSFLASH September 2019
NEW IN BIZ
PrintToColour.com is now live! Print to Colour is a Windsor based family-friendly art website. The main artists, Charles Sklenar and Rowan Piper created the site to encourage creativity, socialization and collaboration among the local art community. One of their fondest memories as children was sitting at the kitchen table with crayons colouring in their favourite superheroes, book characters, and movie princesses in colouring books. Growing up, they spent much of their time drawing their most creative designs. Now they can share their art and ideas with the world as can others! PrintToColour.com lets everyone download it, print it and colour it! Visitors to the site can scroll through the images, make a purchase, download the PDF files, print them out on 8 ½ x 11 paper, and start colouring. You can also use online colouring programs to colour an image. Sklenar mentions an app is in the works for customers to use after a purchase. They plan on expanding the content with videos presenting the artists, tutorials, ideas, and more. As well, a special “Fan Art” page lets you turn your designs into your art. Simply submit your art, and your submissions can be posted on the page and also on social media. Local artists are also welcome to submit 8 x 10½ line drawings as well, for possible payment. For more information, contact creator Chuck Sklenar via email.
