Even if you missed this year’s State of the City Luncheon, you can still get in on the celebration of “Santa Clarita: A City of the Arts.”
For the event, a new coloring book depicting historical scenes and locations in the Santa Clarita Valley as well as City art pieces was created. “The History of Santa Clarita Coloring Book,” which was distributed in printed form to attendees at the State of the City Luncheon on Oct. 25, is now available as a free download by visiting santa-clarita.com/coloringbook.
“Santa Clarita’s rich history was crafted by those who came before us such as William S. Hart and Tiburcio Vasquez. It was shaped by landmark events such as the discovery of gold beneath the Oak of the Golden Dream and the horrific tragedy that was the St. Francis Dam disaster,” said Mayor Laurene Weste. “This coloring book brings history to life, supports curriculum in our schools and engages students with visual representations.”
“The History of Santa Clarita Coloring Book” consists of 20 pages for coloring and two pages of activities. Locations depicted in the coloring book include Beale’s Cut, the Newhall School Auditorium and Heritage Junction. By visiting the City’s website, parents and teachers will be able to download the complete book or individual pages to print.
