Creative workshop for children: Let`s paint the music!

Attention! This workshop is made for children aged 6-10 years.

Do you want to paint or explore some classical music? What helps better to develop the imagination and creative thinking of a child? We dare to state: no need to choose! This workshop will let the child of ages 6+ combine both activities within one class.

Let's take a look at our program:

  • We will start with listening to a music piece that contains a plot (they call it "program music").
  • Altogether children will try to guess the plot and the personage encrypted in a piece by solving music-related riddles. Reacting on the piano, moving, having fun and discovering elements of music that composers use to create a character - this is what we will do.
  • Finally, children are going to paint the character that they discovered in the piece (a dancing elephant, jumping gnome, swan in the lake - who knows...). Painting will happen step by step under the guidance of a professional artist.

A few important details:

  • Everybody is welcome, but the program is generally intended for children of 6-10 years old
  • English will serve as a working language. Some Dutch is not a problem, maar niet te veel. Main directions and guidance to children will be given in English
  • Materials for painting will be provided for free during the session
  • No need to have any experience in music! Curiosity is enough!
    The workshop is given by two hosts: a musician, and an artist.
