By Marrit (gr. 6, right part) and Luuk (gr. 1, left part)
- cd's with classical music
- drawing sheet A2 size
- tempera paint
- jar with water
Every first grader came to the sixth graders and asked a student to work with. Each pair was sent to a classroom where they listened to a piece of classical music. By talking together, 'What do you think of while hearing this?' 'What do you feel?' students had to make a painting. One student on the right side, the other on the left side of the sheet. It wasn't nesessary to make one painting, but they might do it. I was all about interpretation of the music.
Marrit (left, grade 6) and Luuk (grade 1) working together on their fishbowls
Students made great artworks together. Some worked together to make one painting, like the one above: two fishbowls, painted while listening to the Four Seasons - Spring of Vivaldi. It is clear the right bowl is painted by the grade 6 student. Other couples chose to paint tow different interpretations, as you can see below.
A great project, worth to give it a try!
