The Benefits of Painting-by-Number, Paint-by-number isn’t just a fun pastime. It is also one rich with benefits. A few include. Increased hand-eye coordination — Painting-by-number will maximize your hand-eye coordination. This is important because, according to LIVESTRONG, “Developing hand-eye coordination may result in better reaction times, as well as enhanced agility and athleticism. It may also improve your typing skills, which can help you become more productive at work.” Decreased stress — There is probably not a person alive who would not benefit from a lower stress level. A trendy way for adults to lower stress is by coloring. Could it be that painting-by-number would have the same effects as coloring? The Huffington Post stated, “(Adult coloring) generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.” Like coloring, painting-by-number requires a good bit of focus, stirs creativity, and calms the senses. In fact, “Stress Less Paint-by-Number” is a modern brand of paint-by-number kit sold by Wal Mart and Amazon. If you’re feeling stressed, painting-by-number might help you unwind. Encourages other artistic endeavors — It’s possible that some artists started out painting-by-number. Maybe paint-by-number was their first-ever experience with art. This painting technique could reveal a love for art that you were previously unaware of. Don’t be surprised if painting-by-number leads to engaging in more serious artistic endeavors. At the very least, it will be fun and offer you a creative outlet.
Coloring will require basic hand-eye coordination skills, and color by number sheets will call upon specific concentration while children coordinate the number on the page with what color they actually need to use. These coloring diagrams will require that children color within specified areas with a predetermined color, and keeping the color within a defined area will help to develop hand and eye coordination. Children will learn to hold the marker, crayon, or colored pencil while controlling its movement in a way that will prevent the color from going beyond the outline.
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.
