With the Paint-by-Number Museum Series, your young artist will imitate four very different famous masterpieces: The Eiffel Tower by Georges Seurat, Irises and Sunflowers, both by Vincent van Gogh, and The Japanese Footbridge by Claude Monet.
Painting by number is often perceived as 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. It 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 on reference sheets. 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 a lifetime of art appreciation in motion.
The set includes four painting kits, each with a 6" x 8" canvas, pop-up easel, brush, six acrylic paint colors, and instructions. Ages: 8+.
