This is a project that Kelsey Howard created this summer at art camp. It was amazing and the children loved it. I had to video tape it and share it with you. I wanted to bring a Kandinsky project — little did I know that Kelsey had a deep understanding of his work. She created this lesson on sound, shape and color. You must watch the videos to see her lead the children. It is magic!Step One: Kelsey told a story of the sound of rocks hitting the surface of the water. The children made the sound with her. The story told the children how the rocks made a rippling effect – sound, shape, and color.
The children drew the “rock” ripples – circles within circles. For the rest of the lesson – watch the two videos below!!
Video 1 shows how she used music to add color.
Video 2 shows how she connected the sound, shape and color in a powerful way!
