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.
So many positive things have been said about coloring sheets and coloring apps in general. Lately, a new trend has emerged on the Internet and it is absolutely raging: color by number and paint by number coloring sheets and pages. Let’s put all these online apps aside for a moment, and focus on the benefits of color by number coloring books alone, especially for young users. Okay, you are given a picture, the numbers are there within it, and you are already told what the color for a corresponding number is. How can it be beneficial? If nothing, it seems a bit simple and stupid, don’t you think? Well, not really!.
For young children, art projects provide the opportunity to learn words for shapes, actions, and colors in order to enhance language development. By completing a coloring activity, your child can use descriptive words to discuss what he is creating and the feelings that his artwork has elicited. Coloring pages aid in the development of critical thinking skills, and your child will learn new vocabulary that can be transferred to other areas of his life, improving his performance at school and the quality of his social interactions.
