This program increases students’ appreciation for and knowledge of the arts as it gives them hands-on experience with as many different visual arts mediums as time allows.

Program Title: The Color of Music

Program Type: Arts Curriculum

Program Description:

This program increases students’ appreciation for and knowledge of the arts as it combines orchestral music and visual art into a very memorable hands-on experience. Students are guided to participate in “The Color of Music,” art contest sponsored annually by the Jackson Symphony Orchestra/League. The contest involves listening to selected recorded musical works, and interpreting the sounds into two-dimensional paintings which will be entered into the contest. Winners will be selected from each grade level to represent each school. Further awards will be given by the JSL themselves. Later students will attend a field trip concert to see/hear the JSO perform the music and interact with the conductor. It is a great way to show students how the arts inspire each other.

Program Title: Unit Study Enhancement

Program Type: Arts Curriculum

Program Description:

This program increases students’ appreciation for and knowledge of the arts as it incorporates visual art-making into another non-arts subject. Examples might include Reading/Science…Perhaps a class is reading a story about Impressionists. Students could produce a drawing/painting done in that style. To link to Science, students could explore how light breaks into the color spectrum as it travels through a prism, and then build their own color wheels using Model Magic, mixing the colors in their own hands. Math/Social Studies would be an easy mix studying a culture’s weaving techniques.
