The next book in this exciting series has arrived! The popularity of coloring books
for the middle school aged to adult artist, while relatively recent, has become one of the
faster growing recreational activities for artists of all skill levels. It took the innovation of the publisher
you've known for many years, however, to marry the visual arts with music in
this never before seen original concept and series, exclusively available from
Experience the high quality you've
come to expect from Santorella Publications in More Colors of Music, with over
60 musical instruments from around the world depicted with intricate background patterns. Each image is printed on heavy stock on only
one side of the page to avoid bleed-through.
Printed in the larger 9 x 12 size, with Santorella's lay-flat binding,
the book is designed to last for years, while each page is perforated for easy
removal and coloring. Every illustration,
while a work of art on its own, will become a one-of-a-kind original piece with
your personal touch; a work of art truly suitable for framing.
The foreword from, "More Colors
"The Colors of Music" began the
journey. Artist and musicians
experienced a new level of meditative creativity with over 60 familiar musical
instruments to color and make their own.
"More Colors of Music" continues this journey with over 60
additional images dedicated to instruments from around the world. This collection of unusual instruments, both
past and present offers an additional cultural context, reminding us how art
and music not only enable us to share cultural similarities, but also explore our
differences in a way which makes the world a little smaller.
From the dawn of time, coloring has been
one of the most basic forms of self-expression and is often the first creative
process which many of us experience. Taking an existing image or pattern and
making it our own is a uniquely personal experience. We decide which creative
implements to use, perhaps crayons, pencils, or markers, and which colors to
apply. As we color, we find we are in control of the entire process, limited
only by our imagination, and when we are done, we have an artistic embodiment
of our own personality, as unique and individual as each of us is to the other.
It makes no difference if we are
relatively skilled or unskilled; we express what is in our heart and mind each
and every time we set pencil to paper. As we become more experienced and
skilled, we acquire the power through technique and style to more freely
express what is so clear in our imagination. In time, our creations become
freely expressed works of art.
Both art and music have creativity at
their core. They allow the artist or musician, both young and old, to freely
express feelings within while providing a sense of joy, tranquility, and
"The Colors of Music" and
"More Colors of Music" literally remind us that art and music are
"on the same page." This highly sought-after series, by Santorella
Publications, will provide both the artist and musician with yet another
creative channel for self-expression and individualism, as well as the opportunity
for some much-needed downtown from the hard work of practicing and the rigors
of everyday life.
Experience the fun and satisfaction of "The
Colors of Music" and "More Colors of Music" for yourself, and
turn each page to discover the endless possibilities and opportunities for
creativity and relaxation, as you nurture and cultivate
your inner spirit, while feeding your soul with peace, tranquility, color, and
The journey continues; have fun!
