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.
Children learn the meaning of symbols. Color by number worksheets are fantastic in helping children understand that symbols have meaning. Not only do children get better at color recognition when using color by number pages, children also learn that numbers can be used to represent other things and aren’t only just for counting. Later on, children will be able to grasp that different objects in their surroundings can actually be used as a symbol for other things and have other meanings. It’s just undeniable that symbolic understanding is important to function well in the society we live in.
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.
