NTCA launches tile art coloring book fundraiser

Home News NTCA launches tile art coloring book fundraiser

artFlowood, Miss.—Starting this month, the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) is initiating a fundraiser to support Tile Heritage Foundation (THF) and the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) in a unique format: a coloring book. The Tile Artistry coloring book features art tile designs and mosaic creations from members of the THF, Tile Council of North America (TCNA) and other members of the tile industry.

“We at the NTCA wanted to support the CTEF and its work in educating, training and certifying tile installers, as well as the research and preservation of the rich legacy of tile that is carried out by the THF,” said Lesley Goddin, editor of TileLetter and originator of the concept.

Timed for holiday gift giving, the 68-page book highlights 32 colorable designs—complete with color key at the back—with contact information for the tile artists and artisans who created the works. Laticrete is sponsoring the project to cover printing costs so all proceeds can go to the two named organizations.

“We sought to celebrate the stunning designs of tile artists and artisans that characterize our industry in a fresh way,” Goddin said. “We also recognized that the world has been through a tough time lately and we wanted to encourage serenity, relaxation, rejuvenation and playfulness. This project supports training, education, preservation in the industry and health in the workplace and at home by the calming practice of coloring!”

TileLetter art director, Michelle Chapman, arranged and formatted the selected submissions into a dynamic collection of designs to color. Tile Artistry is available for $15 each, shipping included, starting Nov. 8 on the NTCA website.
