Paint-by-Number Museum Series - set of 4
Our price: $28.95
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+.

My son loved this, especially when we decided to take it slow on the last painting, instead of completing it all in one day. He did such an excellent job of copying the paint by number guide, and a little artist emerged where we didn't even know one existed. His paintings look great, and I'm so proud of him. He hung them up on the wall to display them. I recommend this product, even to those who don't love painting.
My daughter loves these paint by number paintings. She get everything out by herself and will spend hours on these paintings, we can't wait to buy more!
These projects are detailed, fun, and engaging. We use them as a starting point for conversations about the artists as they work through the painting. It requires the student to focus and is a great practice in concentration and dexterity. The end results are beautiful and great confidence builder for budding artists!
My kids have loved this set. It produces a really nice final product that could be a gift.
My daughter absolutely loves doing these. She keeps telling me I need to buy more so she can do one every day.
