Tiffanie Chauvet May 27, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
Our last blog post featured Matisse. Our featured work of his in our book is The Sheath. Crayon Kid and I were looking through some Matisse prints earlier in the week, so Matisse was fresh in our memory! This Fourth of July weekend we spent a lot of time outside. We visited Woodcock Dam in Meadville and went fishing in a pond nearby.
We were excited to see a ton of different trees that we don’t typically see up in Erie. Taking advantage of this opportunity, we gathered up a ton of different types of leaves and took them home, with project plans brewing away in our minds! We decided to make leaf prints inspired by Matisse’s Sheath painting because of its leaves.
Sub types of the same term-structure can be distinguished by using different shades of the same color obtained by varying the pressure of the pencil’s point for dark or lighter shades. In simple terms, use the same color for related features and different colors for different sets of features. Therefore, what may appear as a deceptive coloring book, an anatomy coloring book is structured in a very specific way, encouraging you to follow an exact set of rules to fully take advantage of its capabilities.
Make it colorful and you could say things that words cannot and help the brain remember them in the future. Learning anatomy is a tedious task. It might be extremely interesting, but reading through pages and pages of writing can sap the energy out of anyone. You might argue that anatomy books and atlases have illustrations to aid understanding and to make the subject less dry, which is totally true. However, while understanding is the critical first chain in the link of learning, memorization is the second. To be able to recall the information later on you need to also memorize it. Just like a chain is as strong as its weakest link, any interruption can pose a barrier to your anatomy learning.
Stimulates Both Cerebral Hemispheres, Apart from effectively combating stress and anxiety, picking up the crayons also stimulates both the left and right cerebral hemispheres of our brain. Gloria Martinez Ayala believes that coloring manages to trigger a number of regions in both the right and left hemispheres of our brain. “The action involves both logic, by which we color forms, and creativity, when mixing and matching colors. This incorporates the areas of the cerebral cortex involved in vision and fine motor skills [coordination necessary to make small, precise movements].” says Ayala.
Teachers call Effortless Art Crayons the great equalizer for students with a disability or fine motor delay, as they support students in participating in inclusive activities with their peers, such as art or coloring. With more positive experiences like these, comes more self-confidence. Coloring is also a naturally calming activity and lends itself to helping children regulate emotions and express feelings appropriately. But did you know of the other amazing benefits of coloring? I’m sure the OT’s reading this know! Here are three more benefits of coloring for children, and you will be amazed at just how important coloring is to a child’s motor development!
