Abstract

The text in question brings a reflection about the illustration books for coloring and their role in education, considering that until recently they were aimed at children. The question that arises is in relation to the training in arts that this type of book can bring. Considering the graphic composition of this type of material, it was observed that they lack more elaborate aesthetic values, are coarse and do not bring learning, but repetitive activities. The intention when presenting a new proposal for this type of book through the Visual A/r/toogra­phy project, is to formulate materials that can actually contribute to the educa­tion of children in preschools.
