The creator of Paint by Numbers

Read more about the guy who had about this idea of guided painting.

“I never claim that painting by number is art. But it is the experience of art, and it brings that experience to the individual who would normally not pick up a brush, not dip it in paint. That’s what it does.” - Dan Robbins

 

That is a good way to put it. One of the biggest reasons I started selling these kits was because it encourages people who would not normally paint, to pick up a paint brush. How great is it to introduce more people to painting, which might eventually lead to an interest in art, where there would normally not have been one.

 

Although it is a little old (the article is from April 2019), I still found it interesting to read about the founder of Paint by Numbers and his intentions. Link to article below:
