Fusion of Concert Colors

Tell-A-FriendEvery year I look forward to introducing "Fusion of Concert Colors" to my fourth graders.  Not only can we talk about "abstract" art, but we can also introduce emotional responses to the music and how we can show that through choices in color, shapes, lines and textures.  ALL children feel empowered and confident as they move their markers or pencils to the sounds and rhythms of the music.  Everyone's work is different and yet they are all accurate reflections of how they felt as they listened. They "get" that connection between visual art and musical pieces and love to hear the music over and over.  I love it! (And always have a difficult time choosing only 6 to go to FAME!)
