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.
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.
Color by number printable give kids a chance to solve a mystery, Granted, not much of a mystery. But when you see a blank color by number page, you don’t know what it’s going to look like before you color it in. As you color, the pictures start to come to life beneath the tips of your crayons. It’s fun to watch it happening. There are also color by number pages out there that do not allow users to see what the pictures are before they are colored… they often feature strange looking mosaics that “hide” a picture in the various shapes on the page. These are also fun classroom activities to complete.
