With whimsy and humor, local artists are tackling COVID-19 with coloring pages and a booklet for children and drawings to help adults through every day.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison “Do Your Part” Communications Task Force for COVID-19 is collaborating with local artists to find and share new ways to talk about the pandemic and what everyone can do to make a difference and thrive. Madison artist, cartoonist and UW-Madison alumnus Will Santino created coloring pages for children. Artist Mary Machaud, a Law School Instructor and alumna, is building a series of drawings that will give viewers a chance to take a deep breath and know small things matter. A group of UW-Madison global health students are putting together a booklet for children about how they, too, can help stop the disease.
