Take your cue from Kandinsky, who said “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul”, and get students to cross pollinate their creative talents.
As well as combining different subjects and skills, this lesson encourages students to trust the process and not be afraid of the outcomes. The aim is to shake their of subjects in isolation – to go on a creative journey that combines dance, drama, music, painting and more. It’s derived from our desire to break the mould in how students respond to art.
Key curriculum links include making connections with the work of other great artists to help the development of students’ own art forms and exploring and developing students’ creative thinking with a cross-curricular approach.
