Yesterday I polled a class about the blue clouds/ white sky... guess
what they said? "It is faster to just color the clouds".
We then had an interesting discussion about skies, and a student swore
he could get me a photograph of a white sky with blue clouds. If he
does, we will make a web page for it:)

When I worked with younger children and skies, sometimes I would have them
use powdered blue tempera and a cotton ball and rub some pigment over the
entire white paper. You have to be careful not to stir up too much dust
for those with alleriges, etc., but the results were wonderful--looked like
a sky. Then they could paint their landscape on top of this, leaving some
at the top unpainted.
