According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to “explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.
Just like meditation, coloring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate free-floating anxiety. It can be particularly effective for people who aren’t comfortable with more creatively expressive forms of art.
Some therapists believe that coloring provides the added benefit of taking us back to the simpler times of our childhood. There’s some hope that coloring can act as a “gateway activity” to reach people who could benefit from art therapy. One study on college students found that coloring pre-drawn patterns significantly reduced signs of stress and depression.
