Presenting Coloring the Coachella Valley

The Coachella Valley Independent Coloring Book!

The Coachella Valley Independent, the valley’s alternative news source, has partnered with the CREATE Center for the Arts and the UPS Stores in Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City (Date Palm) and Yucca Valley to create Coloring the Coachella Valley, a Coachella Valley Independent Coloring Book!

This is a tough time for us all. The Independent, like so many other businesses and community organizations, has suffered a devastating blow to our finances during this COVID-19 crisis. The CREATE Center has mobilized its 3-D printing capabilities—and those of others—to make personal protective equipment for the local medical community. And many artists are facing an unknown economic future.

Hence this awesome coloring book project, featuring the work of local artists, as well as Independent file photos converted into coloring pages! All the proceeds will be split between the Independent, the CREATE Center and the artists whose work is inside.

The 24-page book is available as both a digital download and as a printed 8.5 by 11 book, on quality paper by the UPS Store.

The digital download costs $20 each; both the digital download and the print version are available for $30 each (shipping included).


• Digital downloads will be sent to customers within 48 hours of purchase, starting no later than Tuesday, April 21.

• Print versions will be shipped via first-class mail, starting no later than Saturday, April 25.

• While the proceeds are all going to AMAZING organizations and artists, sales are NOT tax-deductible.
