Provides a feeling of accomplishment. Art is a process of creating something from nothing; and bringing a design to life with beautiful colors gives a satisfied sense of accomplishment.
To be fair, I need to mention the argument against coloring…. some believe (strongly!) that coloring stifles imagination in kids. They argue that it’s better for kids to create their own art than to color in someone else’s drawings. But one does not have to be exclusive of the other! I vote in favor of coloring in addition to having plenty of opportunities for artistic expression. There are times when creating art can involve more decisions and problem-solving than a child is mentally or emotionally up for making. As a stress-reducing outlet, coloring promotes a peaceful meditative state where no decisions need to be made other than choosing pleasing colors. And sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered!
As parents and teachers, we can only eliminate so much stress from a child’s life. Some of the stress a child experiences will just be beyond our control. So teaching kids coping techniques and providing stress-reducing activities can be a proactive way to deal with some of the difficulties of today while encouraging healthy habits for years to come.
