Colourful pencils in a circle pointing inwards

Colours of yesterday is a new colouring book for older people, featuring drawings that are more accessible for older hands and eyes, with themes lovingly depicting the way things were. The colouring book was created by Australian artist Annette Innis, based on her experience teaching participatory art classes for older people and refugees, and published by HammondCare Media.

Alongside Annette’s 30 original drawings are real-life stories, which further bring to life the warm familiarity of the past while opening a door of connection and learning for younger family and friends.

The book draws on expertise from the Centre of Positive Ageing in western Sydney and experience from the ground-breaking Arts on Prescription program.
