Since several of our children are budding artists, this kit was right up their alley. They could hardly wait to get started.
The box says “Watercolor Made Easy,” which is an accurate description. Except for a few sparse outlines that remain white even if you paint over them, the canvases are mostly blank and much more forgiving than standard paint-by-number kits.
The kit includes canvases for three of Monet’s most famous paintings, along with all the tools necessary for recreating them. You can follow the paint mixing guides to match the colors of the originals… or use your own favorite colors to make a masterpiece uniquely your own.
My six-year-old Abby decided she prefered pink waterlilies to white , but her finished painting still won her a blue ribbon in the East Texas State Fair.
The kids enter a variety of arts and craft projects in the Creative Arts Competition every year. This year, six of those entries were reproductions of famous paintings done using kits we got from Timberdoodle. Between these Aquarelle watercolor paintings and the Faber-Castell acrylic paintings the kids did over the summer, we earned five first place ribbons and one second.
