explaining white

I, too, explain black and white in terms of both science (light) and art(pigment) because even high school kids get confused, especially when they take physical science, photography, and scientific visualization (computer stuff). I bring in a prism and pure pigment. I explain that pigment is solid coloring matter-it has weight and mass and can be held in their hands. Light cannot. However, I also go on to explain that, although white is not on the color wheel, in pigment study it is treated like a primary color because we cannot mix any others to create it-we must have white pigment.
