Special local event for world read aloud day on february 2nd!

Join us for a special event at Color Me Mine Thousand Oaks for World Read Aloud Day to celebrate literacy, art and community with "Paint Me a Story with The Adventures of Joy Sun Bear!"
Local author and illustrator of the best-selling book on Amazon will be presenting an interactive, fun, and creative event for children ages 6 and up! Children will embark on an adventure as they discover an empowering magical story and characters through a creative process of reading, painting and drawing.
The Color Me Mine and Joy Sun Bear teams live locally and want to give back to our community after experiencing the Hill and Woolsey fires last year. A portion of your fee for this event will be donated to Ventura County Community Foundation. We appreciate your help and support in working with us to help our community.
