The Morse Art Studio's Weblog

Just another weblog

Jazz! January 25, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 3:41 pm

First graders have been listening to a lot of music in the Art Studio lately.  Mostly Louie Armstrong, Miles Davis, and other jazz greats.  There are so many lovely books about jazz that we read: Jazz Baby, Bring on that Beat, Charlie Parker Played Be Bop, and I Live in Music.  Am I missing any good ones?

The students created abstract collages, inspired by the music and books.  With an array of materials: paper, cellophane, newspaper, aluminum foil, and tissue paper, students shapes that sound like music.  Included in each collage is a drawing of the student’s home, either apartment building or house.
