Have you ever wondered about the effects coloring has on children? Have you thought about the benefits coloring books have on children? Some suggest that coloring pages have many advantages and some quite the contrary. There are many different opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of using coloring pages for kids. However, many studies have pointed out some stunning benefits children can experience when using coloring books and the positive effects they can have on children’s mental state. After reviewing some of the most relevant studies and articles there are some obvious conclusions.
One of the things that convinced me about the benefits of coloring for adults is an article I read by an art therapist and psychotherapist who saw first hand the changes in her clients when she put coloring books in her waiting room. She echoes many who believe in the power of coloring. The following are some of the benefits I feel are most noteworthy to mention.
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.”
