Saint Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The inaugural edition of Coloring Book Magazine, an on-line publication that explores and celebrates the world of coloring and coloring books was launched on June 29, 2012. Coloring Book Magazine is a place for the exchange of ideas and goods that promote creativity and expression through the medium of art and coloring books. “Our goal is to provide content that expands the perception of coloring and coloring books as wide as the color spectrum,” commented Cindy Kalachek, Managing Editor. Initially, the magazine will be published on a quarterly basis, and then monthly. On-line subscriptions are free.
Coloring is more than child’s play! It’s often the first foray into the art world for children and this experience can be especially profound for those who continue to pursue art as grown-ups. The first issue of Coloring Book Magazine has content designed for both grown-ups and kids. The children’s corner offers a place for play and inspiration: children can learn from living artists, and participate in art activities and of course, print pages to color. Articles for grown-ups highlight philanthropic organizations, museums, and artists who have utilized coloring books in various ways. Even the act of coloring is pushed “outside the lines” with viewpoints on coloring as a meditative process and as a way to add special touches to wedding receptions.
"We welcome every reader and "color-er" to the first edition of Coloring Book Magazine and I personally extend a heartfelt thank you to the artists, writers and participants of this inaugural edition. The new magazine is a natural addition to our business of manufacturing coloring books for children and adults. Throughout the years some people have voiced the antiquated and quite arguably unpopular idea that coloring books would somehow stifle a child's creativity. We know history certainly begs to differ -- just ask any artist. Whether you are in or out of the lines, our company looks forward to feedback, comments, criticism or praise! And of course, we invite everyone to come and play," commented Wayne Bell, Publisher
