4th Grade Art and Music Showcase
For their music presentation this year, 4th graders collaborated with Mrs. Kissick in music and Mrs. Lee in art to create an original artwork inspired by a mystery track.
Students were presented with eight different musical tracks. The tracks had no identifiers such as titles, composer, or genre. Tracks were all instrumental. Students chose a track that spoke most to them and began story mapping what the music made them think of and feel. We used these brainstorming sessions to begin designing an original artwork that best displayed how the music spoke to them.
The artwork has been displayed in the main hall, by track, with QR codes that play the music! These pieces are personal/deep and have great artist statements that support their line of thinking. We even had one 4th grader compose their own track for the project. This is the first time they've ever been asked to do something like this and they really enjoyed it.
Please use the links below to view the projects. Each student has a slide with a picture or video of their art with the sound track.
