Coloring can be a highly effective way of fostering physical and psychological well being in children. While it’s a relaxing form of self-expression that stimulates creativity it also promotes a range of benefits to nurture well-being.
Coloring is proven therapeutic for some kids, especially if they do it frequently. They vent their feelings, frustrations and other emotions though coloring. An angry child vents out his frustration by scribbling over the picture of the sun or outside the lines.
Coloring is becoming accepted within a University setting as a tool for students to maintain focus. Theresa Citerella, 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.”
