Color World Culture

This 'Color World Culture Volume-2 (American Indian Art & Pre-Columbian Art)' extends far beyond a regular colouring book. There are thirty-seven pages including two bonus pages full of images that are both culturally rich and stunning. These images are multifunctional and beside colouring, can be used to create cut-outs, masks, and various other crafts. There is a synopsis about the art forms included in the volumes, complete with a brief historical footnote for each image. Overall the images are carefully chosen to inspire creativity in the minds of all the participants. A Review on the Educational Value of the World Culture Art Coloring Series ------------------------------------------------------------ Research has shown that drawing and colouring are vitally important creative outlets for young children as they enable them to become immersed in their own colourful imaginary worlds which can be translated onto paper. Significantly, these activities are not only fun but also support a child's educational and creative development, a fact which Mrinal Mitra, author, and illustrator of the popular World Culture Coloring Series, is clearly cognizant. His books, which, amongst others, include Color Egyptian Art, Color Phoenician Art, Color African Art, and Color American Indian Art, not only provide depictions of a diverse range of culturally significant artworks (all of which can easily be colored or decorated in a multitude of ways), they also include key pieces of historical or contextual information for each item. The wide selection of artworks included in each book not only serve as an inspiration for creativity but also as an introduction to the unique themes, concepts, and ideas that are prevalent in that particular artistic tradition. The series' skilful blending of creative fun and instructive learning makes these books an invaluable pedagogical resource that can easily be used by both teachers and parents alike. Having integrated one of these colouring books into the educational program of a local museum, I can personally affirm both the popularity of this series amongst children and its pedagogical potential. I look forward to seeing what other cultures will be added to the series in future. ------------------------------------------------------------ Dr Mark Woolmer, February 17, 2017 Durham University, Department of Classics and Ancient History, 38 North Bailey, Durham, United Kingdom, DH1 3EU.
