MOMS, DADS, TEACHERS, STUDENTS, KIDDOS, EVERYONE!!! Do you like to color?
This is probably nothing new BUT…I thought I would point a few things out that I’ve researched and more importantly learned over the years being an art teacher.
Benefits for Kids:
They will ditch the device for a while. Screen addiction is a real thing. Lets be honest, who is addicted to their screen as an adult? Just think what kids are going to experience in a world where EVERYTHING is online and accessible.
Promotes focus and concentration. In a world where stimulation is everywhere. It’s nice to promote a more relaxed state of mind.
Can improve handwriting. They are tasked with staying in the lines. This focused manipulation of the medium (the crayon or colored pencil) is a skill.
Gives them confidence. Especially when you showcase their work, ask them questions, and praise them. Having a little art gallery at home is a great way to showcase artwork. Check out my Pinterest board for some display ideas.
More accepting of criticism and guidance. When they make mistakes, help them learn how to improve. Show them.
Benefits for Adults:
Ditching the device! < As I mentioned in the kid’s column, we all need to unplug for a while.
It can reduce stress because you’re putting your mind in a meditative state focusing on the present act of coloring. Making marks on your paper, choosing colors, and experimenting with techniques.
It travels well. Take your project to the beach, to a coffee shop, wherever you want really.
