We hope that by highlighting the vast benefits of coloring that we may even inspire teachers to use it in upper primary and elementary schools as an effective way of calming their students and introducing them to mindfulness.
Coloring is becoming accepted within a University setting as a tool for students to maintain focus. Theresa, a student studying art therapy at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass. said that “A lot of my fellow graduate classmates bring these coloring books into the classroom setting as a tool to focus more on lectures.” She explained that more professors are beginning to welcome this behavior. “For my internship, I find the clients who are fidgeting and cannot sit still ask for coloring in books in order to concentrate on group discussions.”
coloring in stimulates creative thinking. Children can develop a drawing style and enjoy making an imaginary world. Children learn to plan as they decide the colors they will use in their picture and then what order they are going to color things within the picture. As their confidence grows, they are more likely to take risks and experiment with color, patterns, and special effects with pencil or marker strokes.
