Since Maya has been 18 months, our home has become one big art studio. Not that it hasn't been before, because my preteen Olivia has been experimenting with different arts & crafts for years. However, now it bothers me more as the amount of art exhibits doubles every day, and the amount of time I have to clean up after every explosion of inspiration brings me anxiety and stress. With that I found myself sitting more and more with my girls and joining them in their coloring, painting or tracing projects. I cherish these moments as relaxing and quiet bonding times. Being an OCD cleaner and de-clatterer when it comes to our living space, I noticed it didn’t bother me as much to have all the mess around as we are coloring and creating an art masterpiece. And that is why I researched the benefits of coloring for adults, kids and teens.
