The book, titled Color: The Art of Making Color, by artist and author Michelle Hirsch, offers children, ages 4-11, an introduction to the craft of coloring, using the latest technology and techniques.
“Coloring books are a really important part of the child’s education and can help them learn to recognize colors, create their own designs, and even create their very own colors,” Hirsch said in a press release.
“With Color: the Art of Creating Color, kids will learn how to create colors and learn to combine them into beautiful and unique works of art.
The book will be a great resource for preschoolers, kindergartners, elementary students, and older students alike.”
Color is a fascinating phenomenon in its own right, with its distinctive color palette, vibrant, saturated colors, and unique, geometric shapes.
The colors of the rainbow are actually composed of two distinct types of hues, the deep orange and deep yellow, which are actually reds and oranges.
Color can also be made up of a wide range of shades of brown, black, red, and blue.
Hirsch’s book also offers parents a peek at some of the more popular coloring books, like the popular Disney coloring book series “Mickey Mouse’s Colorful Journey,” by illustrator Dan Curry, and the popular coloring book “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.”
While the books are certainly not the only ways children can learn about coloring, they are a good starting point.
Hartz said she hopes Color: will be able to give parents a great foundation for teaching their children about the creative process and how to develop their own colors.
“Children learn best when they’re learning in a structured and supportive environment, so we think Color: is a great way to do just that,” Hartz said.
“Color: The Book” is available on Amazon and the Walt Disney Store.
