Welcome to the Wildersoul Colouring Book.
Thank you all for your ongoing support!
There are over 365 artworks in this free online colouring book already. My original goal was to upload artwork daily for a year, and I have exceeded my own expectations by reaching this number after only six months.
I will unveil Stage Two of the great colouring book plan soon.
Until then, please feel free to print and colour in this collection of free artwork. You are welcome to browse anytime. Comments are very welcome. Also links to your drawings and completed colouring pics are very welcome too.
Colouring helped in my healing from post-traumatic stress. I love to hear how colouring helps heal your soul too.
Some quotes from my colouring community:
Hi, thanks for dropping by my page. I’m so surprised that such a blog like yours exist. I have recently got acquainted with mandela colouring, and is trying to pursue as a hobby or as a way to destress and refocus. Can you share how has colouring therapy help you?
Hi althea, thanks for your comment. Colouring helps me to remember trauma from my past. I can only guess at why it helps. It will be to do with the brain, and how the brain works. I colour and draw sometimes with the hand that I do not normally write with. This also helps me to remember. It is very hard work to bring traumatic memories to the conscious mind, where they can be processed. I found it was good to have some support available, in the form of someone who will be there, listen, believe, and accept what happened. Colouring is only a part of the things I have done to heal from trauma. There are a lot of things which may sound simple, and are very helpful. Sun, water, sleep. Writing about what happened. Crying. And many creative things, with a focus on expressing myself with regards to the trauma. There are many support groups available online.
Thanks for the visit to my blog. I used to colour too when I needed to cope with my depression and all of that. Thanks for sharing this and I hope you get your plans to provide these coloring sheets off the ground soon.
If you don’t mind, I’d like to use some of your pages for my classes. I teach “Ethics and World Religions” in an international primary school in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I try to offer children a wide range of tools to use in their (future) lives to develop mindfulness. I think coloring is certainly one of these tools!
I am most honoured that you would like to use my colouring pages for your classes. I wish you all the best with the children, and give you full permission to use my artwork for your stated purpose.
My very best,
Edie from http://braininjuryselfrehabilitation.com/ has been kind enough to comment on why colouring is helpful in healing the brain on her informative blog. Here’s the link to her comment. I’ll keep an eye out for her future post on this subject.
Absolutely love your idea/concept for this blog and can’t wait to see where it all goes! Coloring is indeed incredibly soothing. I thought you’d be interested to know that, during my time as an undergrad at New York University: Gallatin School of Individualized Study, I used to go every Wednesday to the “Cookies and Coloring Club” — we would just snack on cookies and milk while coloring to our heart’s content! I really look forward to following your blog. Best regards, G. E.
Love seeing this. It’s such a nice idea -creating and drawing are so good for our own souls and then sharing them with other people to colour in – that’s really like a ripple in a pond – you never know what it might touch. Lovely (thanks so much for dropping by my blog too…:))
WOWWW ! ! ! My wife and my daughter will really enjoy your blog … they love to color.
I think your blog is great. I’m looking forward to following your blog.
Coloring is soothing.
I agree-coloring is a wonderful way to unwind and just be-this is a great idea and I wish you much success-
Thank you too for taking the time to visit Move the Chair-I appreciate you looking!
Very interesting stuff here you are so right about coloring and its therapeutic qualities. Years back in London a friend had a breakdown but refused any kind of medical help.
She discovered coloring her then five year old son’s Anime comic books calmed her soul…she ran with it and not only did this help her; she has been able to help so many people with it.
I think inside all of us is still the innocent child who finds comfort in the simpler things of life;perhaps this would help explain why a simple activity like coloring can have an amazing healing effect on many.
Thanks for coming by my place, I too will be visiting often here
Beautiful graphics. I especially like your geometric designs. I recently discovered the joy of coloring while in a psychiatric hospital. Have you considered marketing your artwork to them? Just an idea. I know the hospital I was at had many different styles of coloring pages and I really enjoyed doing it. So much so, I just 2 weeks ago bought myself some coloring books. So sorry I didn’t discover your site sooner. But when I’m finished with these, your creations are where I will head.
