MaryAnne says, “Last Fall, Timberdoodle sent me a the Paint-by-Number Museum Series that is part of their 3rd grade curriculum kit. These kits are for ages 8+; my four children chose to each tackle one… These kits don’t teach anything about art techniques, but my children have a new appreciation of just how much work goes into creating a work of art. I notice them looking more carefully at paintings in books and museums, trying to work out how many different colors and layers were used.” Read the rest of her review at Mama Smiles.
Tawnee says, “Do you have a budding artist in your family? We do. My daughter LOVES LOVES LOVES art and loves any opportunity to do an art project. That’s why we were excited to give Paint-by-Number Museum Series a look. This product, from Timberdoodle, is an awesome way to study famous artists while recreating some great masterpieces in a paint-by-number atmosphere.” Read the rest of her review at Adventures in Homeschooling.
Alicia says, “Paint by number might not be the art lesson you’re envisioning when you picture your kids creating art… I wanted to add in art in a gentle way, not requiring too many steps or processes. Enter, Paint-by-Number Museum Series.” Read the rest of her review at Investing Love.
Erin says, “My kids all love to paint, but let’s face it. There are not many Paint-by-Number sets for the over 8 crowd. Fortunately, we have found one that we really love!” Read the rest of her review at Mommy Octopus.
Jennifer says, “I remember attempting a few paint-by-number kits as a child. They were all huge — 16 x 20 or bigger — with infinitesimally small areas to be filled in with smelly oil paints that were easily smudged and took approximately three weeks to dry between layers. By the time my masterpiece was ready for a second color, I’d completely lost interest in the project. I don’t think I ever completed a single painting that way. These Paint by Number Museum kits by Faber Castell aren’t like that.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family Website.
Amanda says, “The Paint-by-Number Museum set, including 4 famous masterpieces, was a huge success for my oldest children. The painting set includes 4 canvases – The Eiffel Tower by Georges Seurat, The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Japanese Footbridge by Claude Monet, and the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.” Read more at Big Family Blessings.
Meg says, “My kids had a lot of fun with these [Paint-by-Number Museum Series] kits and truth be told, I’m a little jealous that I didn’t get to paint one. We painted inside, we painted outside, we hid paint in the couch (toddlers! Amiright?!), and we also had a good time learning about our chosen artist. My children (9, 11, 13, 17 at the time of this review) found the kits easy to understand and use. It took about 5 minutes from the time they opened their kits to when they started painting.” Read the rest of her review at […]
Samantha says, “In our homeschool, we have studied Monet and da Vinci so far this year. While we talked about the artists and looked at their different works, being able to add the Paint-by-Number Museum Series really added to the lessons.” Read the rest of her review at As They Grow Up.
