I took this picture from my classroom fire escape this morning, as it was snowing. Isn't it grey? I bet you can't tell if it's done in a black and white, right?
Here's the same picture, but with a black and white treatment. Can you tell a difference?
Nope. I couldn't.
So because it was so slushy and grey, I decided to look again at some art that my students made that was up in our hallways. I had the Burnaby Art Gallery come in and do a hands-on workshop. Students learned how to do story boards of a social story, how to show feeling through collage, water colour, pastels. Then they picked a phrase or sentence that represented their picture.
There's my colour for the day.
