7 Real Reasons Why Women Join Coloring Groups

It’s no secret: women intuitively draw close to others for work, for fun and for worship.
We thrive on the deep impact as we allow others to share with our thoughts, our feelings and our actions. But the true value is in the heart-to-heart work that bubbles below the surface: the friendships and bonding that makes coloring group activities oh so enjoyable.

Of course, there’s a lot more good stuff to be had if you join an adult coloring group, here are just a few:

Boost in Satisfaction

Finding and connecting with others who share your joy in coloring fulfills your need to belong so that you can feel happier and more satisfied.

Jack Up Self-Esteem

Hanging with other women on the same path of discovery, meditation or just plane fun through coloring gives you an opportunity to improve your self-worth and self-esteem.

Barrier Busting Stress Relief

Enjoying your own coloring while appreciating other’s interpretations stimulate your creative processes which turns around and gives you more energy to reach your own goals more easily and quickly.

Collaborative Flow Beyond Coloring

Sharing your own knowledge, thoughts and ideas in the community allows you to release yourself into a greater sense of flow and inner peace and that’s good for over-all problem solving and overcoming challenges as they pop up during the day.

Glow and Show

Allowing yourself the creative breaks to appreciate others or simply share your progress enhances your performance as an individual – be it at work, at home or even in your coloring.

Boldness Breakthrough Surprise

Allowing yourself the indulgence of adult coloring and joining a thriving coloring community has encouraged many women world wide to challenge assumptions and take more risks in a healthy way.

Value and Love Tank Filling

Having a place where you belong and experience connection gives you a sense of integrity, solidarity and social integration which helps you know you are valued and fills your love tank, giving you grace and strength to push through the day-to-day crazies.

I didn’t know you had a colouring group. I would love to join it. Every group I belong to gives me something different. Some gives you support in your learning process. Others offer help through tutorials, others are just friendly & striving to reach a new goal in their colouring levels, etc. I haven’t met one person (& I’ve met & befriended a lot of people through these groups), who doesn’t give me something & I, being the helpful person I love to be, offer them everything I can to help especially new people trying to learn, by sending them words of encouragement, or tutorials on something they’re struggling with, or just some helpful hints. I love the group’s I belong to. I’ve only just joined Bennett Klein’s group. Bennett does the images & we’re to buy his books & colour them to pist back to him, or colour his freebies & do the same. He’s from Toronto, so a fellow Canadian (as there’s not a lot of us in these groups).
His work is if a caliber that I’m not sure I can do them justice so I’m just observing @ this point. Lol.
I’d like to know more about your group, what type of pics you do, offer, or suggest. I know I’d get a lot out of it,mespecially if you’ offering tutorials. I love colour alongs too. I get a lot out of them, be it a small, medium, or large group, tho I tend to stay quieter in a large group. I love learning so am always keen to do these alongside someone who could direct us & show us different ways they colour & why.
Thx. I’ll stop babbling now. Have a great day!

I’ve been doing the adult coloring before it became so popular recently. I do it because it helps distract me from my anxiety and depression. I do enjoy the coloring groups, as I have learned about a lot of different coloring tools and techniques, but also everyone sharing what they have done is also inspiring and puts a smile on my face. Since joining a bunch of groups, I have accumulated more friends also. I think it’s a great way to have fun, and relax.

I love the coloring groups! So inspirational! I started coloring to get some stress relief and being an artist myself it was not long before I started making books! I also love getting to know other artists! I have made some life long friends! I just started a group with some artists and we are planning on making those tutorials we always say we are going to do and who better to ask how to color something than the artist themselves if you are stuck! I have great hope for a friendly info sharing community!

Yes, joining a group is great like you said you share ideas and talk to each other. It’s a web family. Coloring to me is so wonderful and relaxing. I have to color every day or I feel like I’m missing something. It’s part of my life now. Where can I go to sign up for your group?
