Coloring Books History
Coloring books first come about in the US. A process called the democratization of art was the cause of the birth of coloring books. The man behind this process was an artist from England called Josh Reynolds. Friedrich Fröbel from Germany and his Swiss teacher, Johann Pestalozzi assisted in inspiring this process. Instructors from all over agreed that an education in the arts was essential in developing cognitive skills and enhancing peoples' perception of the world. The skills that a person develops in art education as a kid are very likely to prove very useful in his future as an adult. He might even end up finding his passion in life or a career resulting from developing an early artistic skill. As far as kids were concerned, many educators found that art played a part in a child’s mental and spiritual growth.
