Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not to know that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number worksheets in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
Everything You Need to Know About Paint-by-Number, When was the first time you were introduced to the term “paint-by-number”? Maybe you were a child, or perhaps it was more recently. In case you haven’t heard of it, paint-by-number is a painting system that delineates a picture into shapes, and marks each individual shape with a number that corresponds with a paint color. Aspiring artists fill in each shape with the called-for paint color until all spaces are filled and a picture has emerged. (Cue the how-did-I-do-that response.) Painting-by-number is truly as easy as it sounds, which is precisely why it gained incredible popularity several decades ago, and continues to be a favorite pastime.
Tips for Painting-by-Number Like a Pro, The beauty of painting-by-number is that one doesn’t have to be an artist, or even be artistic, to make the system work. When executed as the directions command, a beautiful piece of art will result. A love for art and a somewhat steady hand are the only prerequisites to painting-by-number successfully. While the paint-by-number system is extremely straightforward, there are certain tips that will make the experience better and the product lovelier. Here are a few tips to make your creation outstanding. Before you begin, clear a flat area. Have a cup of water and paper towel handy to clean brushes. Clean brushes when they start to get all gunked up. Make sure the tops are completely closed when you’re done with them to prevent drying. Try working from top to bottom. Paint with the lightest OR darkest colors first. ThoughtCo. said, “Start with either the darkest color and end with the lightest or the other way around, leaving any segments that have a mixed color (double number) till last. The reason I recommend doing the colors in sequence from dark to light (or the other way around) is that this helps you learn a little about the tone and chrome of colors.”
