Transcript of Paint The Music: Mark Making Using Sound

Learning Objectives
- To understand the terms 'mark making' and 'abstract art'.
-To explore mark making though the combination of art and sound / music.
Success Criteria
You MUST: listen carefully to the music to help it influence the marks the you make and the materials you choose
You SHOULD: experiment with various materials that are available in order for your marks to reflect the music.
You Could: stand up and move around so you are not restricted to the marks you make.
What is mark making?
The act of applying any material to any surface.
The way in which you change a surface to create a visual and interesting piece of work.

Can you think of some examples of various materials and surfaces you can use?
What do you think abstract art is?
Abstract Art:
Not attempting t product things as you see them through your own eyes.
Trying to produce art through emotions or an idea rather than trying to reproduce a realistic object.
It is more about the marks, shapes, colours that are used within the work to reflect a feeling/ emotion/ state.
Wassily Kandinsky
Kandinsky was one of the first modern artists to paint abstract shapes to express his feelings rather than painting reproductions of what was infront of him i.e objects, portraits, landscapes etc.
His artwork was created from a great appreciation of classical music, painting whilst listening to music.
He believed that colours made you think about emotions, he claimed that when he saw colour he hear music.
