Art 101: What Does Paint-By-Numbers Mean?



Paint-by-numbers is a method of painting in which each section of the painting is assigned a number and the corresponding color is used to fill that section. The painting is completed by filling in all of the numbered sections with the correct color.

This method of painting was first introduced in the 1950s and quickly became a popular way for people to create their own paintings without having to be an expert artist. Paint-by-numbers kits are still available today and can be a fun and easy way to create a beautiful painting.
