Coloring helps the child to learn how to control the scale of his hand. Please note that when the baby is just started to draw he does not monitor the boundaries of the sheet, and the picture is not painted on the outlines, and even beyond.

Coloring appeared in the United States as part of the "democratization of art", inspired by a series of lectures by British artist Joshua Reynolds and the works of the Swiss educator Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi together with his student Friedrich Friedrick Frobel.
