<< yet personally, back in the stone
ages when I was in grade school, it was paint by numbers kits that got me
interested in art in the first place. >>
I too, loved the paint by the numbers...I wonder though whether that was
because they were the most available "art for kids/beginners" available at
Along with coloring books...
A personal note.... I was so proud of myself when I found the technique of
outlining in a dark shade and then coloring in the shape a little
lighter....It looked so COOL!
