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.”
Children’s length of concentration develops and improves over time. coloring requires good concentration and this type of focusing on one task can help a child develop his or her overall concentration levels.
Coloring allows children to express their individuality through color selection and medium. It’s interesting to observe how much pressure they apply, the color choices they make, and whether they color loosely or tightly. Everyone is different and so is each masterpiece. Filling in the spaces with color on a printed page helps children to learn hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different color combinations.
