Artists & Kiddos Come Together to "Color Me, Huntsville!"

October Is Huntsville History Month! And the Scout Guide Huntsville and the Historic Huntsville Foundation are completely thrilled to feature the Color Me, Huntsville coloring books in celebration! Huntsville artists Carole ForetChristina Green, and Christina Wegman added their artistic eye to provide drawings of Historic Huntsville for these coloring books and have been gracious enough to celebrate Huntsville History Month with us here! 

To make it super fun for kids and adults alike, the Historic Huntsville Foundation is making 6 coloring sheets from the Color Me Huntsville book available for download starting today, October 1 through October 6th. All you have to do is drag and drop here. Or you can use the Historic Huntsville direct download link

The six included sheets are: Temple B’nai Sholom and the I. Schiffman building (Forêt); Harrison Brothers Hardware and the Newman Building (Green); and the Weeden House and Saturn V Rocket (Wegman).

And at the risk of sounding like a gameshow host here-–but wait there’s even more! You can win a set of signed coloring books from each of the artists. The rules are simple: Download a page, color it, post it on Instagram or Facebook, and tag us (@tsghuntsville) in your caption! A winner will be drawn at random from all the entries on October 14th!

TSG Huntsville’s scouted fine artist, Carole Forêt, shared her artistic interpretation of Schiffman Building, which was once the home of Talulah Bankhead and her family.

Color Me, Huntsville is an educational initiative that introduces third grade students to Huntsville’s historic places and discusses the importance of their preservation.  The Historic Huntsville Foundation offers third grade classrooms In Huntsville City Schools free copies of Color Me, Huntsville, as part of their mission to promote historic preservation. 


The Coloring book proceeds from books purchased at Harrison Brothers Hardware, The Little Green Store, the Huntsville Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau, and online at the Historic Huntsville Foundation website are used to give books to the third grade classrooms in Huntsville. For the month of September 2019, Huntsville History Foundation donated 450 coloring books to third grade students in five elementary schools in Huntsville and Madison county (That is $4,500 raised folks)! And the Huntsville History Foundation plans to visit another nine elementary schools and continue the coloring book distribution through October and November.
