Coloring Pages for children is a wonderful activity that encourages children to think in a creative way and arises their curiosity.
Awakening the Secret Garden within Part IIMichelle Casey's finished Secret Garden page. Today I thought I’d share my first coloured page in Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden with you along with imparting some more reflections on colouring. Devoting time to colouring reminded me of how important it is to nurture a sense of fun in the studio. Recently a friend commented on how he used colouring as a tool to escape from the bullying of an angry parent. As in the past, I’ve also extended the life of Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden; recently, it’s inspired me to give shape to a new piece which I’ll share with you soon. It is an educational tool and is considered an important contribution to a child's development. Recently, I was compelled to buy the book because I hoped it would help me to focus in the studio. Did you know Basford is collecting images of coloured pages for a Secret Garden Facebook album? Beyond the educational virtues, coloring sessions allow us, the adults, a little peace and quiet while the boy or girl enjoy coloring.

You see, despite my best efforts, I’m the type who allows my worries to rule my head… some days this really paralyzes my sense of creativity.
Not to mention the result: coloring pages for preschoolers are proudly presented at the nursery, kindergarten or even grandma and grandpa's living room! Please note the images are not hosted on our servers, hence some of the images might not download.
The moment I spied Secret Garden, I remembered how colouring once helped me cope with childhood stressors.
Feeling a colour pencil in my hand again was good; I remembered how important it was to hold it just so and put the right amount of pressure on it to elicit bold or subtle nuances of colour on paper… and how beautiful it is to layer colours upon each other.

As well, she just published a Secret Garden postcard colouring book – see the link below for more information… wouldn’t it be cool to send a hand-coloured postcard to a friend! In the last little while I’ve accomplished more work than ever… all while colouring my daily demons away!
Like collage, colouring allowed me to create worlds of my own choosing; ones that were much rosier than the one I was living in.
With regards to the latter, it certainly tuned me into my creative inner voice (See: Awakening the Secret Garden within Part I).

Other times, when I grew tired of straight colouring, I inscribed Zentangle-like patterns onto colouring book images. I experimented adding light and shade to images as well but it didn’t take me long to realize that I didn’t need to mimic the colours or textures of the real world – my colouring book was a free-for-all space; a place to break the rules and to breathe life into ordinary paper with colour! That sense of freedom allowed me to develop a personal relationship to colour, texture and line. I continued to copy, trace, cut out and collage my favourite imagery onto greeting cards and school projects. As I did this, my brain began to take in the contours and shapes of things and that in turn fostered a sense of drawing, composition and collage. As I think about those times, I realize that colouring books were like mini experimental visual art labs. They were a great place to develop and expand my creative skills while simultaneously enjoying myself… most importantly, they provided me with a space to imagine a brighter world and to trust in and connect with my inner voice.
