Color Creations: Color Me Calm

March 2, 2022 5:30 PM
500 N 4th Street
Murray, KY 42071 United States
Free

Calling all colorists and coloring book enthusiasts! We are starting a coloring book club that meets once a month. Bring your coloring book and pencils and spend time coloring with others. We will share information about artists and new books, and we will show you new techniques each meeting. If you are new to coloring, coloring pages will be provided and you can borrow pencils and tools that we have here. We will meet the first Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:00p. It’s for 16+ and there is no fee. Feel free to bring a sack dinner, if you’d like.

The Cleveland Clinic released an article on the benefits of adult coloring last year—

What does adult coloring do to relax people?

Dr. Bea, clinical psychologist, cites three reasons adult coloring can be calming:

1) Attention flows away from ourselves. A simple act, such as coloring, takes your attention away from yourself (and those things that are stressing you out!) and onto the present-moment event. “In this way, it is very much like a meditative exercise,” Dr. Bea says.

2) It relaxes the brain. When thoughts are focused on this simple activity, your brain tends to relax. “You’re not disturbed by your own thoughts and appraisals,” he says. “The difficulties of life evaporate from your awareness, and both your body and your brain may find this rewarding.”

3) Low stakes make it pleasurable. Go ahead: color outside the lines! The outcome of coloring isn’t predictable or prescriptive. It can be as neat — or as messy — as you choose, and this is one of its relaxing perks. “It is hard to screw up coloring, and, even if you do, there is no real consequence. Adult coloring can be a wonderful escape, rather than a demanding test of our capacities,” he adds.
