A fun, exciting and unique way for people of all ages to learn about the visual arts!
"Painting through Music" features musical compositions inspired by 12 paintings from 12 different schools of art (Renaissance through Abstract Expressionism). Do a Google search for the painting then listen to the music while admiring the work of art and reading about the painting, the artist and that period in art history. The music is meant to enhance the viewing experience and captures the mood, emotion or story behind the paintings. When possible, the drawing techniques used in the paintings are mimicked with the equivalent musical techniques. Kids and adults alike will find this a fun and easy way to learn about the visual arts!
