Coloring Fanatics – Now you might ask yourself, what does coloring do for me? 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.” So while this is not formal “Art Therapy” you can open a coloring book and get some of the benefits just listed. For some people it helps with stress, and or depression.
We are a judgement free zone, and we love to socialize while we color. It doesn’t matter how new, old, good or bad you are. If you are interested, you don’t need a coloring book, we have plenty to choose from. We also provide pencils, and markers, so you can try your hand at all coloring has to offer. We meet on the first Monday and Friday of the month, and the fourth Monday and Friday of the month, in the Lemon/Lime Room from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
