Who Should Be Credited with the Creation of Paint-by-Number: Michelangelo or Leonardo DA Vinci? Some people dismiss paint-by-number as an elementary, formulaic painting system. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it’s worth mentioning that Leonardo DA Vinci is rumored to have created the first painting-by-number system. In his book Math and the Mona Lisa: The Art and Science of Leonardo DA Vinci, Bülent Atalay wrote, “Painting by number may not be as egregious a pursuit as one might imagine. Leonardo himself invented a form of it, assigning assistants to paint areas on a work that he had already sketched out and numbered.” Other sources suggest that Michelangelo should be credited with the invention of the painting system. Either way, paint-by-number had anything but humble beginnings.

Furthermore, color by number coloring pages can be used to teach maths in terms of subtraction, addition, multiplication and division. How? Well, instead of putting a 5 in a shape and telling children in the legend that fives are to be colored purple, put a problem such as 3+2 or 8-3 for example, and tell them in the legend fives are to be colored purple. They have to stop, think and calculate, which is an awesome way of tricking them into practicing math while they think they are merely playing. Color by number coloring pages really come in handy when teaching little kids valuable lessons that can be applied to other things in life, such as following rules and finishing a task till the very end. In other words, color by number coloring pages have clearly defined rules, and that is the only way they should be completed; children know the rules, they should stick to them and in a way learn how to be patient, concentrated and how to obtain self-control. On the other hand, there is no way to see the “mysterious” final result unless you hang in there and finish the coloring of the image 100%. The final feeling of accomplishment and pride lingers later on in life, teaching the little ones that being focused and thorough gives satisfaction.
