Painting Music

My grade Grade 4 students have been studying the orchestral piece "The Harvesters" by John Estacio for our upcoming concert Musical Adventures, presented for students by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. We are so fortunate to have access to such an excellent program!

We listened to and discussed the music. We noticed that within the piece there are many instrument parts that overlap one another. Students portrayed these layers in their art as well as any other elements that they heard. Students then reflected on their art and its connection to the music. This is what they came up with! 

Students used watercolour paint, salt, and marker to simulate the overlapping layers in the music.
