Color By Number Coloring Pages
Easy Art: Color by Number
Color by number coloring pages are popular for childrens arts and crafts and a favorite of adult coloring enthusiasts. Color by letter or color by math activity sheets help children learn while making art.
Art and pictures filled in with paint or colored pencil using a number color key can help young children learn math and colors. Coloring and crafts aid in development of hand-eye coordination. Math results / color-keyed answer sheets involve solving simple addition, subtraction, multiplication or division problems to discover the coded color number for each shape in the picture.
Adults of all ages and older children enjoy color, pencil and paint by number leisure art activities. My first real oil painting was created from a numbered painting kit I got for Christmas when I was 9 years old. I mostly followed the paint color key guide, but being a budding artist I took liberties with the paints ... you can too.

Coloring by the numbers or color by letters is similar to the famous paint by number art hobby kits.
