Each year, the Science History Institute joins other cultural organizations from around the world for #ColorOurCollections, a weeklong coloring fest launched in 2016 by the New York Academy of Medicine Library.

If you are a fan of both coloring and chemistry, grab those colored pencils (a product of chemistry!) and add your own artistic embellishments to items from the Science History Institute’s collections of fine art, alchemical illustrations, periodic tables, and more.

Click on the links below for printable PDFs, and share your results on social media using #ColorOurCollections.
