Sure you've drawn in 2D but with our new 3D Pen you can take your sketches to another dimension, the 3rd Dimension. This pen is (something) like a manual 3D printer, it uses plastic filament that it softens as it heats up allowing you to draw lines that cool into your final 3D masterpiece.

coloring

Coloring is an activity we think of as being for kids. However, it can be beneficial for adults.

Coloring helps us de-stress because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. Coloring generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Coloring sheets and colored pencils will be provided. Adults only, please.
