In order to know where you are going it is good to know where you have come from. Part of Paarl’s unique and interesting history holds beautiful architectural buildings. A talented local artist has penned them down on paper in line-drawing style and it is available to you for free! Download and print out the drawings and have a good time colouring them in.
Engagement in creative activity has a way to create a space that makes one feel safe and comfortable. Your mind is blank other than what you’re doing at that very moment, colouring-in. Adult colouring-in has become quite a thing and we are turning to crayons and felt-tips for their soothing and therapeutic qualities. We hope that our drawings will help you beat the stress of covid-19 and provide some sort of art therapy.
Paarl has many examples of Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Cape Dutch buildings dotted along our oak-lined 12km-long Main Street. It is one of the best-preserved 19th-century streets in South Africa.
