A few years ago, I wrote a book about realistic crayon drawings. What a joy it was to create, for I had brought my childhood dream into my adult professional life. I wanted to share it with others, for few knew that crayons are actually a wonderful fine art medium. They're not just for kids!
In fact, taking a crayon or colored pencil to paper is a therapy method that dates back to the early 20th century _ though it seems people are just starting to rediscover its benefits. So how exactly does something as simple and seemingly childlike as filling in the lines lend itself to combating adult amounts of stress?
