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+.

This was included in our grade 3 kit. The two boys (8 and 13) decided to share this. They both love it. The 13 year old is not very art gifted but wishes he were. He was so proud of himself after completing this.
We loved the Paint by Numbers Museum Series! The canvases are smaller than I thought they would be, but it was so nice to have an art project for the kids that was already prepared. We’ve only done two so far, but my boys, who are ages 10 and 8, loved them.
We have not had an opportunity to use these yet. I was saving them for this winter when we are stuck inside and need to keep us busy. They look hight quality and come individually packaged. My son is eager to use them.
Love this!! I am a big fan of art and teaching art. Finding ways to bring art into the eyes of a child is amazing. My son loves that he can now create his own Starry Night.
We bought this for my one of my sons that wasn’t too interested in it so I painted them and thoroughly enjoyed, bought again as a gift for an 9 yr old girl who spent the day painting hers.
