I jumped on the adult coloring book craze some time ago. I have quite a collection of books and coloring utensils. I find that coloring is relaxing and therapeutic. I'm much more at ease while I am coloring.
A recent study by Newcastle University, featured on BBC news, showed that art therapy has greater benefits than puzzles and exercises when it comes to improving memory function. Engaging the brain in new and creative ways may be the key to a sharper, younger mind.
As a passionate advocate of art therapy and graduate of Royal Holloway, bestselling illustrator Anastasia Catris is urging everyone to go beyond the recent calm coloring craze and train your brain as you copy, complete and color a series of animal creations with Draw and Color Your Way To A Younger Brain. This adult coloring book will be available for purchase on January 24th, 2017.
With 176 pages, this adult coloring book is different from others in that it encourages you to color finished pages, but also encourages you to use your own imagination to finish what's been started. For instance, it might prompt you to fill in a garden with beautiful flowers or fill the night sky with bats and stars. I don't have very good drawing skills but have been enjoying coloring the completed pages in the book and taking the suggested prompts to add in my own designs.
The pages of this book are of good quality. To prevent any bleed-through I don't use markers. Rather, I've been coloring with pencils and gel pens. There are pictures on both sides of each page.
I don't know that my brain is getting any younger by coloring in this book, but I know it's been a fun way to pass the time and I really like all the animal artwork. The animals featured include both domesticated and wild species.
One person will win a Draw and Color Your Way To A Younger Brain adult coloring book.
