Art Coloring Book

Color your way through the palettes of famous paintings
Van Gogh’s sunflowers might be yellow, but yours don’t have to be! Coloring has always been a favorite activity for children, but it’s becoming increasingly popular among adults looking for some mindful downtime. Exercise your talents and get inspired as you color famous artworks and even landmarks from Street View.
The painting or picture is decomposed in layers and eight dominant colors are presented at the bottom of the coloring page. Unlike a classical coloring book, this one adds depth and perspective elements present in the original artwork as the user colors an area.
This simple coloring tool lets people discover twenty-one famous paintings and monuments in a new way. A flashy, pop palette is also available for the most daring ones to experiment on their own version of the artwork!
Art Coloring Book is available in the Google Arts & Culture app and website. Ready for more? Let's play!
For space lovers, a special edition of Art Coloring Book x NASA is available for all to enjoy!
