Coloring books for Adults: Meditative, Educational, Artistic and Just Fun

Coloring books for adults are not a new idea, but in the last few years they have exploded in popularity and variety. You no longer have to stop coloring when you graduate from grade school!

Some coloring books are meditative: based on the ancient Buddhist principles of the mandala. Many grown-ups find that coloring is so relaxing and healing , and even deeply spiritual. Indeed you will find spirituality of all kind shown in adult coloring books.

Adult coloring books are also very instructive and educational . The Anatomy Coloring Book was one of the first educational coloring books, and there actually are coloring books for all kinds of difficult materials.

No longer a little kid’s craft – you can now find coloring books that are where talented artists show their wares. It is amazing the amount of talent who show their wares through adult coloring books: graphic artists, illustrators, video game artists, animators, cartoonists, fine artists, and photographers, street artists. If you want fine art you do not have to go to a museum – you can just check out an adult coloring book!

And a lot of adult comic books are just fun. Whether it is biting satire or light humor, you can find amusement in coloring books.

I was amazed at the incredible variety of coloring books for people who are way past the age of grade school: adult coloring books truly are a treasure.
