October 2 Day 208 Part 2: After

It was relaxing. A Zoom meeting with mathematical friends, both old and new, to collaboratively color online. The conversation flowed effortlessly as we concentrated on filling in white spaces with splashes of joyful color.

There were four images to choose from (see them in their original form in this morning’s post.) and below you see the result. Admittedly, to help us stay between the lines, I finished the pieces by overlaying the original black outlines above the colored layer.

I knew there would be rebels that did not want to be constrained by the predefined images. So I created an additional space to unleash their creativity. Well, here is that space:

One pink dot was added. Instead these artists would not be contained.

What a pleasant way to end a long stressful week. Thank you to my co-hosts Naiomi Cameron, Julie Barnes, Beth Schaubroeck, Frank Farris, Su Doree, Christina Osborne, Kayla Murray, and Deveney Smith. And thank you to the participants. I did get a screenshot of the entire crew, but here is one with stalwart participants at the very end showing off many co-worker (both real and imaginary).

I promise this was my screenshot. Why might you disagree?

  1. Thank you so much for setting up this wonderful event. I loved coloring with everyone, and I learned about the 123-Go idea while we were chatting! That has been so successful in my classes, and I even shared this in my recent presentation at an online conference for lectures and adjuncts. They were so excited to try 123-Go too. Also, I created my own collaborative coloring whiteboard just as you did for the end of the conference day. Just wanted to say thanks for all the fun and inspiration!
