Anderson .Paak Announces His Weekly Coloring Contest To Keep Kids Entertained While In Quarantine

As the coronavirus continues to spread and cities across the country have issued shelter-in-place ordinances, many find themselves isolated indoors. Musicians have responded by offering channels of entertainment to beat the boredom of quarantine. Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is hosting daily livestreams from the comfort of his living room. Charli XCX hosted a series of livestreams with musical guests. Now, Anderson .Paak is offering entertainment specifically for children.

Anderson .Paak announced his inaugural weekly creative series titled Paint With .Paak, in partnership with his foundation .Paak House. All ages are urged to participate in the coloring contest and .Paak will be sharing his favorite final products every day on his social media accounts. A brand new sketch goes live each Friday in the Paak House Instagram bio. Here’s the first one:
