This new craze has gone beyond its use for doodling or a form of activity for relaxation, or an activity for the elderly. Hobbyists are finding this to be a fun activity and are using their finished art pieces in craft projects.
I must admit that personally I bought into this concept hook, line and sinker. When my two older daughters were small, I colored with them, and enjoyed doing it. I never realized the calming effect it had on both the girls and me.
In conclusion get yourself some crayons, colored pencils, markers or paint and allow your self the freedom and stress reducing pleasure of coloring. It is good for you!
I then did research on the values of coloring for an adult. I found that my kids were right. Coloring is indeed a stress buster. It breaks the circuit of our over-loaded brains filled with never-ending thoughts. I found out that coloring quiets your mind as you focus on your masterpiece.
Coloring in a picture will command your childs full attention, as they concentrate on completing their work, and having the finished product show that they have done their best. This is a welcome assistance for parents who struggle to provide their children with experiences that will captivate their attention, only to find that their little minds and bodies start wandering after only a short time. So as a parent, you gain a short respite as your child works on their coloring page, your child gets to participate in a fun activity that teaches them as well. Which leads me to the next point.
People who are considering art or find that they have a potential or interest in learning how to draw and color find that this new hobby interest is helping and building their confidence to advance their art training.
Finally I saw the light and recognized the almost instant calming and relaxing effect that drawing had on her. It was a fantastic mood-altering, anger reducing experience. At long last, I shut up about telling her to grow up.
So go ahead and search for various fun and enjoyable coloring pages for your little one, fill their lives with happiness, and splash them with loads of colors - colors of happiness, joy, creativity and learning. Allow these toddlers to delve into the deepest ocean of visual effects and color-schemes, and witness your little Picasso grow into an intelligent, sharp, perceptive and of course, creative individual, and a complete package.
Unfortunately as adults, we tend to put our crayons aside for more grown up endeavors. As we mature we put away our artistic aspirations and replace them with more worthwhile activities.
If you are anything like me, I started downloading free examples offered by artists located Online. Selecting landscaping, animals, people, and objects allowed me to experiment and gain a better understanding of colors.
