Psalms Coloring Posters
These posters are available as a physical product, a digital product that you print yourself, or both. Please be sure to make the correct selection when you purchase.
Our Psalms Coloring Posters include nine unique coloring posters. They are based on the Psalm texts from the Revised Common Lectionary (Year B). Each of the illustrations highlights specific themes and emotions from that Psalm and the texts from the Psalms are also incorporated into the drawing.
Whether you're looking for an intergenerational program, a communal art activity, a program for a retreat, or something new and different for Lent, our Psalms Coloring Posters provide a creative, engaging and participatory way of engaging with faith.
Poster Details & Ordering Information
You have a few options when ordering your coloring posters:
- Physical Posters: These posters are printed on thick, 32-pound paper that works beautifully with many different mediums – from crayons to colored pencils to markers. Each of the nine posters is 24" x 36". Physical poster sets ship to the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
- Digital Files: We have both B&W and Color Digital Files available for purchase. Upon completion of your purchase, you will receive a link to download the illustrations in a zip file. International paper sizes can differ, but you can easily resize the files as needed. Detailed instructions for getting the posters printed are included with the download. Many print and copy centers can print "engineering" prints, or blueprints - this is the least expensive option generally available.

Why Focus on the Psalms?
The Psalms are a great source of theological creativity, depth, and wonder. Reading the Psalms allows us to learn that emotions are a good thing and that we shouldn't try to hide them from God. Reading the Psalms gives us words to express the feelings we have, and helps us to see the authors of the Psalms struggled with many of the same things we struggle with.
Another great reason to purchase our Psalms Coloring Posters is that they can be used anytime you want, and are not uniquely tied to Lent. While the Psalms come from the RCL texts for Lent (Year B), these are also Psalms that can (and should!) be studied throughout the year so it isn't a problem if you don't finish all the posters. Use a few during Lent, save one for a youth group retreat, use another for a women's Bible study...they're perfect for so many occasions.
