We talk about this a lot and post to our Instagram handle constantly.  Art Therapy to us is that time to help you unwind and relieve stress. Studies show that sketching and drawing can help clear your mind, relax and essentially de-stress from our draining lifestyle.  This calming activity of mindful art engagement can help significantly decrease symptoms of physical and emotional distress during cancer treatment says the same study.

Coloring. What can it do?

Coloring stimulates your right brain and helps you think more clearly.

If you’re not already nurturing your imagination daily, coloring can help you express your creativity in a fun and constructive way. Research shows you have your best ideas when your right brain is stimulated. Coloring gets those creative juices flowing and helps you think outside the box (while trying to stay inside the lines).

There is no right or wrong way about it.  Your artistic ability is your own and you are at your own stage. So color that sky yellow or that tree black.  It is your imagination and your creation.
