- Stay in the lines
- Make all the strokes go the same direction
- Choose complementary colors
These are the basic rules to complete your adult coloring books the "right" way. Aren't they? But what if there isn't a "right" way to color? What if the only "right" way is the way that makes you happiest?
Last week I received a few completed coloring pages from a very special person - Jack.
Jack is 21, has autism, and was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He has discovered "coloring helps him calm down during busy times in both his environment and in his head. It is an activity that he uses on a regular basis now and truly helps him change gears."
This just warms my heart. As the creator of coloring books for grown-ups (and older kids), I'm thrilled to help create some peaceful, stress-relieving and enjoyable times for others through these little adult coloring book sets. And isn't that why we all color?
We do it because it makes us happy. So that's the right way to color: happily.
