Sign Language and Art Colors


Date: Tue Mar 30 2004 - 16:08:02 PST

Greetings fellow Art Educators:

I have a question about working with special needs students, specifically
hearing impared students. I have had some of my hearing impared students ask how
they should sign some colors from the Crayola box of 96 colors. Does anyone
have any ideas or suggestions of where I might find some help on this? I have
already contacted Crayola directly (via email) and am awaiting their
response. I was curious if anyone else out there has had this same issue? Any ideas?

I know how to sign the basics: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple,
brown, black, white, gray and pink. How do I sign Purple Mountain's Majesty,
Magenta, Scarlet, etc? With all of these creative color names, besides spelling
them, shouldn't there be a way to sign them?
