The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted by Two Writing Teachers
I'm still thinking about coloring and making art today. Last night I found coloring so relaxing (I wrote about it here). Today, I picked up Picture This by Linda Barry. She seems to see art as therapeutic too. The book asks questions about drawing and making art. This little section was interesting in light of the fact that last night I used a coloring book and I am well over the age of ten.
Is this true? Could it be? "If you use coloring books past the age of ten, you will wreck your imagination forever." I say if that is the risk I am taking, so be it. However, letting your mind wander as you fill in little sections of line drawings, seems like a pretty healthy activity for a troubled, stressed, or tired mind. My evening plans include a coloring book and a box of crayons.
