This project is another one for the annual Picture The Music Art Competition for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Here, I wanted to focus solely on color & its relation to feelings or moods. So, after listening to our selected music, I had each student think of only 1 color that they think would best match the song. Then, we drew an abstract drawing on the paper using a variety of lines & shapes. Next, I showed the students how to mix their colors into each space. They painted each space a different tint or shade of their color. I know tints & shades are a little deep for Kg's, but I figured the process of mixing the colors to make them darker and lighter is more important here rather than focusing on the technical terms. So, I think they turned out pretty well...what do you think?
