COLOUR PAARL PRETTY

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.
