Some Thoughts on Painting by Numbers

Jul 31, 2008
Almost all of us, when we used to be kids were very much fond of those projects of painting by number. There were various pages available, which used to contain a number of lines and the parts of the picture were numbered in a particular manner.

The numbers were there to denote the different colors, which should be used in the right places. This is really helpful for the kids as they are not always aware of the right colors that should be put in a particular place. At the same time the kids have a goodtime with these painting by number pictures.

Generally the colors come in a package with the pages that contain numbers on it. The small package has the finished picture printed on the package and you just need to fill in the colors provided within the paintings by number boxes and make them look like the one that is given there.

But often kids are not able to perform the task properly and mistakenly fill the places with some other color, which is not instructed. This makes the pictures look quite funny. But at the same time it is good for the kids as they can use their imagination to paint the pictures.

There are many kids who learn the right color combination while using these paintings by number. This method was considered as the actual art form in the year of 1950. The teachers used these painting by number color pages in the classes.

This is in fact a self-teaching aid for the kids who do not have anybody to help them with their artwork. At times the kids color the pictures so nicely that you will feel like framing them and use them to decorate the walls of the kids' room.

Many of the artists used these painting by color pages in childhood and they grew up into the perfectionists whose coloring sense was acclaimed worldwide.

There are quite a number of benefits that the kids get from the painting by number pages. First of all you can stop them from painting on the walls and spoiling them as you get those painting by number pages. Secondly they will learn about the right color for a particular object. If your kid is using them then the chances are quite high that they will never again paint the trees blue and the sky green.

They get to spend their time in learning something good like painting on their own and this way they can be kept away from the silly television shows. The only problem is that according to some people these color pages spoil the imagination and creativity of an artist as they come with detailed instructions leaving a very short space for the artist to do something on his own.
