“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.”

"Creative thinking is a vital life skill which enables us to imagine, innovate and respond to unexpected or changing situations. Over the last few months, we have all had to get creative in the way we work, teach and learn, in light of the global pandemic. Now more than ever, we can see the importance of encouraging our students’ creative thinking."
-Laura Sigsworth

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced”

– Vincent Van Gogh

“Adult coloring requires modest attention focused outside of self-awareness. It’s a simple activity that takes us outside ourselves in the same way, cutting the lawn, knitting or taking a Sunday drive can all be relaxing.”

-Scott M. Bea, PsyD

"Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work."

-Beaumont Health
