Contrary to what you may think, coloring is not just for children. Coloring books bring a great deal of stress-relief to a growing number of adults. Taking a crayon or colored pencil to paper triggers and stimulates the brain areas associated with motor skills, creativity, and the senses. As stress relievers, these adult coloring books are truly helpful in lowering blood pressure, reducing anxiety and assisting in helping you learn to relax and unwind.
Studio Series Adult Coloring Books
Set your inner artist free as you immerse yourself into the Studio Series of adult coloring books from Peter Pauper Press. The acid-free art-grade paper helps preserve your work. While the designs are printed on only one side of the page, so there is no bleed-through.
Each page is micro-perforated for ease of removal and display of your creative masterpiece! Each Artist’s Coloring Book measures 9-1/2 inches wide by 9 inches high (24.13 cm wide by 22.86 cm high). Binding lies flat for ease of show.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can significantly affect fine motor skills. My daughter has been using the adult Coloring Books from “Peter Pauper Press” as part of her traumatic brain injury rehabilitation.
“For me coloring has been very soothing, allowing me to deal with anxiety,” said Megan. “For me, coloring is a form of meditation.” Megan states that she never really listened to classical music, but pairing classical music with coloring gives her focus and seems to change her mood.
These adult coloring books not only serve to help someone, such as Megan take part in a relaxing activity they are also enchanting works of art, unleashing one’s own creativity.
