The giveaway has ended.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
Congrats to our winners:
The Art Colony is pleased to offer you a chance to
win a free copy of
a 64-page book by Thaneeya McArdle (yeah that's me)! This fun book is filled with easy step-by-step lessons that show you how to draw colorful whimsical art such as owls, cats, mandalas, paisley, butterflies and more!
Draw Groovy was written with kids in mind, so it would be a perfect gift for a budding young artist! Teens and adults might enjoy the book too, particularly beginning artists who want to learn to draw cute colorful art filled with shapes and patterns.
For a detailed look at Draw Groovy, I encourage you to check out my overview of Draw Groovy on Art-is-Fun.com, where you will find images of the lessons in this book, and learn more about what this inspiring book contains.
For this giveaway, we have TWO free copies to give away to TWO lucky winners!

I would love to win this! I would use this to learn with my kids that I teach at home. We love to try new and groovy things!
I would use this book when teaching art to children. Projects that have simple drawings, yet look complex because of the design element are both inspiring and doable. This book provides details and examples for children to mimic; improving their creativity and their success rate, which in turn, encourages them to create more art! I am also going to start working as a behavior coach, and will no doubt use "art as therapy" sessions with my clients. The meditative aspect of creating and coloring these designs is healing- and not to mention loads of fun! I could go on and on about the benefits I see in this book. I would put it to GREAT use! Thank you for this opportunity.
Just looking at the cover of the book makes me feel happy. I would introduce your lovely book to my granddaughter who is so eager for Spring to arrive so we can plant and play in the garden again. This book would be the perfect "perk me up" for both of us. Thank you.
I have four young granddaughters and I wish to start them with the solid foundation to learn and appreciate the beautiful world of drawing and painting!
I would like to win this book because I have neglected the artist within and I want to unleash her. I have an illustrative book idea that this book would help me with. I am starting my life over and now is the time to follow my artistic dreams.
OOOOOO...I'd love to win this book! If I was lucky enough to win I would definitely use what I learn for my ATCs!
I love this style and need help doing it!
I love this book and will use it to help teach children to become budding little artists during summer art camp. The designs are simple yet complicated enough that they won't get bored too quickly. The colors are outstanding! If I don't win this book I will buy it anyway because I already had it pegged as the one I wanted.
Big fan of your art, Thaneeya! ;)
I would love to win this book, to give to my 10 year old daughter, Catie. Catie has some artistic talent (thanks to her Momma), and I truly think this would help her ignite some more creativity. :~)
I would create a mural with my daughter on a wall in her room. We love drawing together.
I would like to win this book because I want to learn how to draw cute subjects without losing the cuteness. I also want to share the fun with my granddaughter.
Hi there. My grand daughter is just a toddler right now, but I'd love to have this book to share with her when she's older. It would give me a great excuse to sit down and doodle with her.
