Coloring provides a fun activity that every age of person can enjoy. You might think you have little artistic talent because you do not draw well, but you can use your innate talents at color matching and the use of hues to finish a drawing that another individual made. That’s all that coloring really amounts to in the end. You finish the line drawing another person created.

Children learn important techniques when coloring. As preschoolers, they express their love of color and show their favorites. They learn the typical colors of things such as the sky is blue unless cloudy when it appears gray, and grass is green except if you live in Kentucky where they plant bluegrass. They also learn to color within the lines something they can practice with an owl coloring page since as the age, the owls you provide to color can grow in complexity.

As children age, their teachers or parents might encourage them to add sketch strokes to their coloring pages to show movement, create patterns, or add detail. For example, you might add feather strokes on an owl drawing to show the detail of the wings.

By junior high school or high school, you might provide a basic line drawing to teach them shape theory for drawing. Circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, and straight lines form the essentials of all drawings. Providing a basic line drawing lets them see how to add to it and what forms the essential shapes of the finished artwork.

In adulthood, people may enjoy coloring complex drawings that allow them to color as if they created stained glass. These complex drawings let them color in the artwork and express their understanding of color theory or explore various forms or periods of art.
