The act of coloring is likened to meditation or mindfulness in that it gives people something else to focus their attention on. When the brain is focused on a simple activity that takes us outside of ourselves and with a predictable outcome, it’s able to relax.
Crayola Color Alive creates an experience for children where they are able to interact with their 4D coloring pages which brings an element of reward and achievement to children. They get to watch it come to life with movement and sound and are able to interactively play with their drawings. It gives children the sense of achievement and pride which has a positive influence towards building their confidence. They are more likely to try things again and take more risks with their coloring in. The Crayola Color Alive app lets children stage photos and save creations with their favourite characters to show off their coloring pages, providing an avenue to express this pride.
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.”
