One of the most wonderful and powerful things an artist can do, is use their art as a way to express themselves. We all have so many thoughts, feelings, emotions, concerns and ideas about so many things, and we can use our art to share all of this with family, friends - even the world!
This week, I am asking you to listen to a song or think about a dream, and create a piece of art.
Music: Close your eyes and listen to your favorite song. As you hear the music, what do you “see” in your head? Do you see… *Images * Colors* Lines* Patterns * Shapes* ? Above, is Kandinsky's "Composition #8" - a non-representational response to music,using shape, color, line and more!
*******Make a piece of art that shows what you SEE when you listen to your song.
Dream: Think about a dream you had. ● Who was in the dream? ● What happened? ● Where was it? ● How did it make you feel? Draw a picture of your dream. Below, you can see Vermont Artist Will Kasso Condry's "I Am Queen Mother". Kasso lives in Addison County and has created both murals and fine art all over northern Vermont. You can learn more about him by following him on Instagram.
