Arts & Culture For Kids Mind & Body Productivity

Stroke your artistic ego

Live life in colour. Paint by numbers and unleash that inner artist.

Painting by numbers is not only fun, but it’s a great way to relax your mind and body plus you have a fabulous piece of art that you did at the end of it. Great for building your artistic confidence too!

With so much anxiety and uncertainty at the moment, art can be very therapeutic. So take some time for yourself, or give the kids something to do that everyone will enjoy.

Create your own artwork

You can buy loads of Painting by Numbers kits online. One site I came across that has some really, cool art to paint is Drawlify. With lots of categories like animals, nature, people, you can find whatever you desire to paint.

Other good sites to buy adult art kits are ilovediyart and Paint by Numbers.
