Tracing Memories™ is easy, relaxing, and fun! Enjoy coloring meaningful pictures from your life using professional quality tools.

 

The Story Behind Tracing Memories

 

Tracing Memories is based on a program developed over 15 years ago in Japan called Copic Art. People of all ages take classes or join clubs where members bring converted outlines of their personal photographs and color them under the guidance of an art teacher. 

 

Many of these members make these images as gifts, memories, and for sharing with friends. You don’t need fine drawing ability; you are simply coloring what you see, making it as simple or as complex as you desire.

 

People of all ages and skill levels absolutely love the Tracing Memories program because it's such a pleasure. Now, we've made Tracing Memories into a mobile app that brings the fun and relaxation right to your home. We know you will love it too!

Benefits of Tracing Memories

 

Coloring pictures from your own life will help to:

  • Reinforce memories and improve mental acuity.
  • Improve observation skills as you invest more time and energy into a picture that has significance to you.
  • Reduce stress and increase relaxation.

Art is a Process

 

The journey of creating art is as important as the finished product. Involve family members of all ages in the process for a relaxing social activity. Spend as much or as little time as you like.

 

Make it Special

 

Art is an interpretation of life, and what makes it special is how we treat it.

The best way to recognize your artistic efforts is by displaying your work. Show it off in a frame, give it as a gift, put it in a community gallery, or print it as a greeting card.

Seeing your work in a frame can be magical. Suddenly all the blending, scribbling, and carefully chosen colors meet together to create something from your heart.

Your life is filled with good times, good friends, and good places. Coloring memories lets you reconnect with those experiences in a tangible way.
