The USA is the origin and birthplace of coloring books. A process called the democratization of art was responsible for the birth of coloring books. Josh Reynolds, an English artist was the person responsible for this process. The artistic works of Johann Pestalozzi who was an educator from Switzerland and Friedrich Fröbel who was a German pupil of his, also inspired this process. Educators from all over agreed that an education in the arts was crucial in developing cognitive skills and enhancing peoples' perception of the world. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are incredibly likely to prove extremely useful in his future as an adult. He might even end up finding his passion in life or a career on account of developing an early artistic skill. Educators assert that small children who participate in art education can be expected to develop emotionally, mentally, spiritually and also socially.
