Just on the cusp of a lot of news casts and articles about coloring as a benefit to you. Yes, you, adults – a simple way to decompress and regain focus and concentration – coloring. With all the “to do” lists and never ending projects it can seem overwhelming and daunting. Regaining appreciation for something as simple as coloring can re-balance, refocus and re-frame your thinking and outlook.
Eleri Fowler, artist from Wales has two of these beautiful coloring books –her spring themed books Joyous Blooms to Color and My Mother, My Heart. A Beautiful mix of poetry and beautiful, truly a hidden treasure and example about simple joy in such a crazy hectic life.
Another great story about loving wild colors and taming hues is Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos. Swatch is a whimsical and imaginative story about appreciating art and free expression. It also calls to mind natural beauty of Earth, power of imagination, creativity and regulating powerful emotion and channeling it into creative space. Perfect for integrative lessons in preschool art, social emotional and core skills.
