Activity: Describing Colour

SAM_2510 Edit

This exercise introduces the three aspects of communicating about colour using observation, imagination and experience

Give everyone a paint colour chart and ask them each to:

A – provide a name for a colour on the chart of their choice

B – include their personal associations with that colour (eg. “It’s the same colour as my duvet cover.”)

C – imagine ordering the colour over the phone (audio describing)
