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!
