Painting by Numbers for Children
Painting by Numbers for Children
Painting by numbers is a great way to get kids interested in art and painting from a young age.
Very young kids love to paint and draw but as they grow up they can become frustrated at not being able to get the results they want. Using paint by number kits allows them to have all the fun of painting and get a great picture at the end of it.
Painting by numbers is a simple concept. A picture is broken down into small areas, each of which is marked with a number. The areas can be of a variety of sizes, for example a picture of an apple tree against the sky will have large areas of sky (as one number) and lots of small areas of leaves (another number).
Each number corresponds to a particular colour in the paint sets that come with the sets. The idea is to paint each area with the colour denoted on it and when all the areas are painted the picture is finished.
