The Paint by Numbers: a practice without gender or age

The practice of creative hobbies is often associated with the female gender in the common mind. Paradoxically, while women have always had, from an early age, a natural gift in artistic practices such as music, singing or sewing, the field of historical arts has always been predominantly masculine. Indeed, it is only very recently that women have been able to be recognized for their artistic work. The lesser presence of women in the history of art could be explained, according to art historian Linda Nochlin, by the fact that women simply saw themselves excluded from the learning and practice of art for historical and cultural reasons. Despite this, the gender roles of modern society have meant that activities have continued this association of the practice of certain arts and creative hobbies in correspondence with the female sex, by extending it to all artistic practices. Thus, the little girl seems to be encouraged to maintain domesticity and to paint, whilst the little boy seems encouraged to practice sports and mechanics. This is why today; we are witnessing the emergence of a movement to fight against gender stereotypes in the education of our children.

Painting by numbers: an exercise accessible to all

The practice of paint by numbers is for everyone, from the youngest to the most advanced, for its ease of use. The only prerequisites are reading numbers and knowing how to hold a paintbrush! Thus, you will be able to share moments of complicity with your toddlers or your elders around a canvas whilst developing their attraction, and yours, for artistic activities. Beyond the development of artistic abilities, painting by numbers is an excellent exercise for working on abilities such as patience, precision and more broadly the fulfillment and personal development. Indeed, the paint by numbers is a privileged exercise when it comes to refocusing on oneself and taking time to face external stimuli and aggressions because of its simplicity. Moreover, it is also an activity that allows children to learn to channel themselves and to continue to stimulate seniors, which makes it a hobby suitable for all ages.
