Crisis of adolescence/ artistic decision (14-17 years): In the adolescent stage, a conscious decision must be made to continue drawing and engaging in visual thinking. Images created become highly individualised. Drawing is used in many fields like medicine to teach observation skills in diagnosis, in anthropology as a method of taking field notes, in science to document experiments and processes, in design to conceptualise ideas, in architecture to map out and spatialise buildings, and in technology to develop prototypes.
Patience, Relaxation, and Self-Esteem – Coloring can help children learn the skill of patience. It allows them to be relaxed and comfortable while creating a piece of art. Through coloring, children can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions. When children use colors, they learn to be more relaxed and comfortable. Completing a coloring sheet gives children a sense of accomplishment, which builds their self-esteem. Coloring regularly and completing projects can boost children’s sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves.
Alongside a need for drawing skills for those entering employment identified by a range of industries in the creative sectors – animation, architecture, design, fashion, film, theatre, performance and the communication industries – drawing is also widely used within a range of other professions as a means to develop, document, explore, explain, interrogate and plan. This includes the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, medicine and sport.
Colouring in has an important place in child development and can easily be incorporated into a child’s day. It provides an opportunity to practice and develop many skills such as concentration, fine motor and coordination for early writing skills and correct finger grip. It also gives the experience of creativity, colour awareness and developing a sense of achievement. All these learning benefits from the simple act of colouring in.
