Art Therapy Magazine Review
About 5 years ago I went through a severe health scare and with that came many, many hours in waiting rooms and testing facilities. During those long days I wished I would have had a distraction to get me thinking about something other than the reason I was in the waiting rooms.
When you are stuck in the waiting rooms of medical facilities the options for amusement are limited and usually consist of using ones smart phone, bringing a book to read and if courageous enough, making small talk with the other medical waiters. Time takes forever and is fleeting all at once. I tried all these things to distract me, and despite my best attempts they never worked. It is nice to have something to start and have completed in a tumultuous time.
The newest trend making a roaring comeback into the 20-teens is Adult Coloring – which is not different then the coloring we did as a children other than the designs are more grown up. I was recently send 2 issues of Art Therapy Magazine for review, which is a coloring periodical.
Art Therapy Magazine is a magazine that not only teaches relaxation techniques but allows you to take that relaxation and color the included pictures. The entire magazine is around 20 to 25 pages, but the articles are in full color and the coloring pictures are on a nice paper that if wanted are suitable for framing. Each issue is split between articles and pictures to color including one “color-by-numbers” photo to color. Each magazine has a nice variation of pages to color, and you never feel you are coloring the same thing twice. The magazine has a flat glued binding that makes it easy to remove the photo, article or coloring page.
Each issue of Art Therapy Magazine comes with a few colored pencils or markers, which over time will build your own collections for you to use. An added bonus is a section in the magazine about blending and using the included implements in a less than common way.
I wish I would have had something this simple during the many hours I spent waiting. I would recommend this to any coloring fans who love receiving a new pallet of pages each month!
