I may not choose to use coloring books in art class but there is
value in them for some people. The whole Monart method using tracing
shapes and forms as a way to increase drawing skills. We trace
letters and numbers to learn them. We copy words to learn their
meaning. Coloring books do the same thing. Use is not the same as
misuse. Some kids enjoy them. Let them. You don't have to like it to
allow other people to have their own preference without knocking
their opinion.
