Visit artist Hebru Branley at the studio to explore the concept of color contrast. The science of color and texture is found everywhere we look. Artists use contrasting colors and textures to make their pieces more visually appealing: rough and smooth, light and dark, thick and thin. Kids can explore contrast as a way to understand their world, so get inspired and create colorful artwork with your kids.
