Shop the Muse: Maud Lewis Colouring & Activity Books

by Shelby Smith


Since this week is Spring Break, and it was recently announced students won’t be returning to in person learning after the break, we thought we would share some items from Shop the Muse to keep you and your entertained while we all stay home!

First up are these wonderful Maud Lewis Colouring & Activity books.  The books are each filled with pages of activities to teach children (or adults!) about Maud Lewis, and explore their own creativity. 

“Stay inside the lines or get creative! Maud Lewis loved using bright colours and capturing the life around her. Now you can too! Bring colour to her creatures and scenic towns around Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.” – Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Available from the Douglas Family Art Centre gift shop.  Each book is $6.95 +HST and MUSE members as always save 10% on all gift shop purchases.

Our gift shops are open for curb-side pick-up only at this time.  To place please call 807-467-2201.  Payment should be made in advance by credit card over the phone, unless otherwise arranged.
