DOHA – Qatar National Library (QNL), recently hosted a special arts event for adults, titled: ‘Coloring for Adults,’ at the Education City’s Clubhouse.

The event was attended by a diverse array of community members, who joined QNL in exploring the popular new trend of colouring for adults.

The new hobby, which is taking the world by storm, is likened to meditation, with activities enabling participants to switch off, and allow their brains to enjoy some much needed rest.

This, in turn, has been shown to reduce anxiety, create focus and bring about greater mindfulness, alongside the creation of general enjoyment for amateur artists.

Commenting on this event, Engineer Saadi Al-Said, Director of Administration and Planning, at QNL, said, “Hosting this joyful activity, allowed us to engage with the community in a productive and positive environment, which encourages both creativity and peace of mind.”

In addition to its community events, QNL offers all residents and citizens of Qatar, free access to an array of diverse online resources, that promote creativity and provide entertainment and social value. These resources are free to all of QNL’s registered members and include subjects such as arts, literature and music. Members can also read thousands of eBooks, listen to audio books and stream music recordings and concerts.

Through such events, QNL, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), exemplifies its firm commitment to unlocking human potential by cultivating creativity and fostering a progressive society, which addresses Qatar’s social needs, and offer opportunities for community engagement.
