Colouring as Therapy - Know Yourself
Colouring is not just an activity for children, but an enjoyable and therapeutic pastime for adults too.
We work hard to juggle the many challenges and complexities of modern life, and we need time to relax and recharge. The simple, meditative act of colouring in lines on a page can help to alleviate anxiety, sharpen our concentration, and cultivate a deep sense of calm.
You don’t need to be an artist to create a masterpiece. Our illustrators have designed these posters with collaboration in mind. Using their framework as a guide, we encourage you to exercise your imagination as you select your colours and fill in between – and outside – the lines.
An ideal activity for time spent alone or shared in the company of friends.
The School of Life commissioned Creative Jeffrey Bowman to create an illustration which would encourage inner reflection.
Jeffrey lives, works and creates in the Lake Distict. His practice extends to writing too - he has two books published by Gestalten.
He very much likes the outdoors. To see more of his work, click here.
