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.”
It takes time and skill to complete a page of coloring and requires a great deal of concentration to ensure pencils stay within the lines. There’s nothing more pleasing and encouraging than completing a task and being happy with the result. For a child, it can fill them with pride and the confidence to try something new.
We need to give young children every opportunity to gain self-confidence and a sense of self-worth. If they can create something that is aesthetically pleasing, then this will help in the positive development of their personality.
