Chirpwood Paint by Shadows®
Paint by Shadows Multi-Canvas Art Kit

Training wheels for the beginning painter · Helps you get the hang of using color

Painting by Shadows Kits are training wheels for the beginning painter. Paint directly on a canvas shadow image using a color image as a guide. The closer you mimic the guide image, the more your painting will look like the original. As your skills and confidence increase, you'll be less and less dependent on the shadows and able to create your own works of art.

Chirpwood Paint by Shadows®

Chirpwood Paint by Shadows® is a bridge for budding artists who might not be ready to conquer a blank canvas just yet. Painters work on a shadow-printed canvas to recreate an image and develop their artistic ability. The everything-you-need paint kits come from Maker Scott Moody, who switched gears from working as an engineer to teaching high school calculus. When he retired he pivoted in another direction and began handcrafting picture frames and traveling to Rwanda to teach. These trips inspired him to create the learn-to-paint kits as a way to give back through the Bridge2Rwanda scholarship program—and to give folks the jumpstart they need to paint a masterpiece.
