Bette Valentine. Coloring Book. February 21st , 2021.
When the Internet was still pretty new anyone here old enough to remember those days? –only a few websites offered free, printable coloring pages, and most of these merely contained some rough sketches or produced teeny weeny pictures. But today one can find a multitude of websites from which you can print out high-quality coloring sheets on nearly any subject that you can imagine.
People who are considering art or find that they have a potential or interest in learning how to draw and color find that this new hobby interest is helping and building their confidence to advance their art training. The first book we purchased had 39 pictures of mandala drawings. A small box of basic coloring pencils started our adventure. We worked with the primary colors of red, orange, blue, green, violet. black, white, and a few other tints which were in the small box. The initial starting stage began with the techniques of our elementary school years. The instructions included the color wheel which we started paying attention to after getting bored with the basic colors.
Animal coloring books. Find fun animal coloring books that provide an array of different animals for the students to color. Don’t just settle for the same old animals; look for coloring books with exotic animals. This not only provides some variety, but it also provides a great learning opportunity. The children will learn a great deal about new animals and their environments. Dinosaurs are also a very popular animal among young children. Find out which animals the kids like and provide them with coloring books specific to their interests.
When washing out your color, shampoo twice. You don’t want any color left in your hair, do you? Don’t shampoo your hair for 48 hours after coloring it. You can always rinse your hair with water and then use conditioner. This preserves your color and allows your hair to ”heal” itself.
Coloring environments for animals. The kids in your class are probably used to coloring animals but they might not be used to coloring the environments in which animals live. If you want to teach the kids something about animal habitats this is a great exercise. Split the class up into groups and have each group color a large panorama of a landscape. Place different landscapes and habitats in different parts of the room. Provide pictures to the students so that they have a general idea of the appropriate colors. Then cut out the animals the children have been drawing and attach them to the habitats. The finished product is an attractive image of a wildlife scene that can teach the children a great deal about their favorite animals. It will also help to teach them the importance of preserving habitat.
The time to open the lines of communication with your child is when they are young. A two or three year old may not be able to have an hour long conversation and tell you everything that is running through their mind or that may be bothering them, but if you take the time to pull out some coloring pages and sit with them for some creative play you will find that they do have their own ways of communicating with you.
