Coldplay in my classroom and sidewalk chalk

I am a fan of Coldplay, I had the pleasure of seeing them when they were not as well known as they are today. Chris Martin was so close to me I could have touched him. ( the venue was quite small, not really even much of a stage, possibly a make shift stage).

Besides beautiful lyrics, and Chris’s dreamy voice, their videos are ever inspiring. They leek into my classroom.
The first time I used a Coldplay video for inspiration was in my Digital Photography class. We made a few prints of the same digital image on printable transparency paper. We layering black and white prints under the softly colored prints to create the style in the beautiful video.

This term I am going to use this video for my stop motion assignment. I am going to give the kids side walk chalk and some cameras. It’s going to be a blast. I will have to post it in fall once its complete.

For this video I couldn’t find one that can be embedded, so you actually have to click on the link to see it, but its SOOOOOOO worth watching.
