Penn Museum Coloring Pages

Penn Museum Coloring Pages

By: Lee Roueche
With the increasing popularity of adult coloring books, I thought it would be fun to create some original Penn Museum coloring pages with objects from our collection. Through the magic of Photoshop, I was able to turn high resolution images of objects and Mary Louise Baker watercolors into B&W outlines. The intricate designs and repeating patterns of these objects make them perfect candidates for this simple and mindful pastime. So if you are good at coloring within the lines or are looking to disconnect for awhile, try your hand at one of these coloring pages and share your work of art with us (@pennmuseum) on Instagram!
