Art therapy has long been proven as beneficial to seniors. Studies have shown that seniors who participate in art projects tend to use less medication and visit the doctor less often, and they often experience less depression.

Because the activity of coloring creates such focused attention, it allows kids to become totally immersed in the present moment, rather than rehearsing negative events of the past or worrying about things in the future. It develops patience and promotes mindfulness…. two qualities we can all use more of!
