With the Paint-by-Number Museum Series, your young artist will get to imitate four very different famous masterpieces: The Eiffel Tower by Georges Seurat, The Starry Night and Sunflowers - both by Vincent van Gogh, and The Japanese Footbridge by Claude Monet.
Painting by number is often seen as being simplistic, uninspired, and mechanical. Yet Leonardo da Vinci himself assigned assistants to paint in numbered areas on a work that he had already sketched out. Completing paint-by-number projects helps your child learn to analyze a subject and observe areas of color, and is an excellent exercise in brush control and strokes as he focuses entirely on getting the right color in the right spot.
Unlike other paint-by-number sets, the Paint-by-Number Museum Series does not print the numbers on each canvas, but rather on reference sheets so your artist can choose to imitate the masterpiece or paint with his own matchless style. Brief illustrated instructions with a snippet about the techniques used by the master artists when creating their works of art will get your miniaturist at the easel fast. Will the results rival the originals? At this price, no. But the attention to detail and the skills developed are sure to set in motion a lifetime of art appreciation.
Set includes four painting kits, each with a 6" x 8" canvas, pop up easel, brush, 6 acrylic paint colors and instructions. Ages: 8+.

The Faber-Castell paint by number kit, was a gift my art loving daughter received. She loved getting to try her hand at the old classic works of art, with the help of what to put where. She was bursting with pride at her finished result. As we study the classical artists and hang prints of their works around our home, we have taken to displaying her's as well!
This selection of art projects is great. They take classic paintings, and make them kid-friendly. It is really exciting for our kids because they can paint some of the greats. Our kids are 7 and 8, but the projects are great for adults, too. A lot of fun and a high quality kit!
I really like how these paint-by-numbers are based on famous works of art. We learn a little art appreciation as a bonus. These can be used by my 8 year old up to an adult. They really do produce nice paintings.
At first, I thought these would be too complicated. Turns out, they're perfect!!
This set is a cool way to have art done by your kids and famous paintings displayed in your house. It's nice that the kids are not only doing an art project and following directions but being exposed to famous images and artists. I feel like having them recreate such a painting helps them remember it much better than just seeing it in a book.
