Art Rocks: NAEA 2014
Transcript of Art Rocks: NAEA 2014
1. Using artwork as a cultural connection to increase the depth of understanding in a song or piece of music.
2. Visual representation of concept. How is this artwork like what we are talking about in music?
3. Connecting similar vocabulary. A composer might create texture in his music by adding layers of sound the way an artist uses it in his painting by adding layers of lines, paint, or color.
4. Creating rhythmic or melodic patterns to represent a specific part of a piece of art. How could we make our music like a painting?
1. Playing music in the classroom to connect to a time period or thematic unit of study.
2. Connecting similar vocabulary.
An artist might add pattern in their work by repeating shapes, lines, or color the way a musician might add pattern by repeating musical elements like melodies, phrases or instruments.
3.Connecting concepts in art and music with thematic projects.
4. Creating artistic interpretations of specific musical pieces.
What types of colors, shapes, materials, objects, or other elements of art would help to represent the music.

Graphing our emotional responses
to music and art
"Lend your ears to music, open your eyes
to painting, and… stop thinking!
Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to 'walk about' into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes,
what more do you want?"
