Henry County is full of creative people. Stop into a business from Visit Henry County, GA’s artisan trail or stroll through The Gallery at BarnBeautiful and you will see the craft of many types of artists on display. Now, with the introduction of Visit Henry County, GAs custom coloring sheets you can add your own artistic interpretation to a local artist’s work.
Visit Henry County, GA commissioned multi-talented local artist Vele Keyta Redding to design a series of four coloring sheets based on local tourist attractions. Choose to add your own spin to some Southern Belle Farm peaches or add some color to a helicopter from Army Aviation Heritage Foundation a new paint job. Bring one of Noah’s Ark’s tigers to life with crayons or add details to the historic Floyd Chapel where Martin Luther King, Sr. preached his first sermon. In addition to a fact about the featured location, each coloring sheet also includes a different activity on the back – from a secret code breaking activity to a cross word puzzle. Browse the collection of coloring sheets and pick one, or download them all!
