Coloring is fashionable and becomes the ally of all: children to the elderly, through the anguished, undecided and overwhelmed. This relaxing bubble is a universal language that does not require training. Instinctive, fun and popular, coloring gives us energy and confidence to face the annoyances of life.
Coloring has the ability to be easy to access from 7 to 77 years or rather the intuitive handling from early childhood. It requires little material: colored pencils, markers, gouaches, pastels ....
The only rule is to love the color and if possible to have a taste for the harmony of the colors. The coloring becomes a therapy where one chooses his drawing, his tools of expression, the rhythm with which one wants to undertake his work. It is a moment of relaxation, a time of decompression to free oneself from accumulated tensions. It's a simple way to express one's imagination. The mind is focused on drawing, it's a break in our frantic life.
COLORING, A SPACE OF SECURITY AND CREATION
Coloring is not a child's play. It requires being fully aware of one's faculties. We must project ourselves, guess the color harmonies to be made, have an idea of the finished coloring. Coloring requires patience and thoroughness if you do not want to leave the lines drawn beforehand. It is between these lines that each person's personality is revealed. The adults, doing coloring, tackle their problems under the lens of creativity.
Coloring is a safe space. It has lines that delimit it as boundaries that must not be crossed. It's a clearly defined universe unlike the mind. Coloring secures us and becomes a safe playground. To move forward, you have to trust to put in color the blank drawing that just waiting to be personalized by your print and your signature.
Coloring is not just filling a space, it's also creating your own canvas. Coloring often has the will to look like reality or at least appear as a reality that you want to see. We are inspired by real life to produce our own message.
The coloring of Art Therapy uses the potential of colors. The choice of colors reveals the state of mind in which we are. Each color carries a strong sense of meaning. Through regular coloring practice, self-confidence is reflected in the choice and diversity of colors.
SOME TIPS FOR COLORING
Invest in quality materials: markers, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, dry pastels ... do not hold your pencil or felt, as when writing. It is necessary to move as far as possible the thumb of the index to have a better grip. Adopt a light gesture, the wrist must remain flexible. Date your coloring and sign them. There are dozens of Art Therapy books, and magazines that appear very regularly. ..You are spoiled for choice according to your desires. ..
In short, the coloring of Art Therapy is a moment of relaxation, do not put the pressure. There is no model to respect, no constraints. Take the opportunity to listen to music, the inspiration will come easier. Share and color with others. Free yourself and follow your instinct!
