The Definition of Coloring Books plus their Uses
Coloring books incorporate sketches produced to be filled and colored using several tools such as pencil, crayons and sharpies. There are coloring books for both adults and children. These coloring books, and coloring pages and sheets are traditionally printed out on paper or cardboard, and some books are made so that each page can be removed from the book once it is completed and used as a stand-alone coloring page. In the case where they pages of the coloring book have a sequence or tell a story, they can't be torn out or used as stand-alone pages because that would spoil the story. Many coloring books these days include coloring pages of extremely popular cartoon characters, such as Lego Ninjago coloring pages or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coloring pages. These coloring books are utilized by huge companies as advertising materials and ways of popularizing new cartoons or films. Lots of other fun activities can be found in children’s coloring books, like number games, mazes, connecting the dots and of course puzzles. There are also types of coloring books where young children can use stickers to stick on the pages and tell their own stories with them.
Coloring Book- The History
The USA is the origin and birthplace of coloring books. This appearance was part of a process called the democratization of art. The person who inspired this process was an English artist named Josh Reynolds. The artistic works of Johann Pestalozzi who was an educator from Switzerland and Friedrich Fröbel who was a German student of his, also inspired this process. Educators from different backgrounds were in agreement that artistic education was helpful to all because it developed cognitive abilities, and enhanced peoples’ comprehension of tangible things. Art education would prove to be beneficial in a person's adult life also as many of the skills he learns might end up supporting him in his future careers. As far as youngsters were concerned, many educators found that art played a part in a child’s mental and spiritual growth.
Coloring books were the invention of the McLoughlin Brothers. 'The Little Folk's Painting Book' was the earliest coloring book made by them in the 1880's. For this book, they worked with a lady called Kate Greenway, and they kept making coloring books until the 1920's. That is when Brothers McLoughlin joined the Milton Bradley firm. Richard Outcault is another fundamental figure in the history of coloring books. In 1907, Richard created a coloring book called Buster's Paint Book which was based on a character he had created in 1902 named Buster Brown. This book is what started the process of companies using coloring books as a means for advertising their products. The first coloring books were made with the thought that they should be painted and not colored, and despite the growing popularity of crayons in the 1930's, there was no change in this approach.
