New coloring book made by children, for children, teaches Suffolk history

James Thomas Jr., The Virginian Pilot
A group of middle school students is creating a coloring book this summer to highlight significant events in Suffolk and make it fun for younger children to learn about local history. The Suffolk History Coloring Book is a collaboration of the Suffolk-Nansemond Historical Society and Suffolk Art League. About a dozen students participated in a weeklong camp June 26 to 30 at the Suffolk Art Gallery. Public and private middle school art teachers chose the students to write, research and illustrate the book. To continue reading the article in The Virginian-Pilot, please click here.
