Paint To Music Contest
Paint to Music is a unique partnership between The Phoenix Symphony and Young Arts Arizona that fosters unified creativity in a student’s approach to the aural and visual arts (please visit their website for more information about the organization). Students are invited to submit artwork created while painting to music selected from an upcoming Symphony for the Schools program; this year’s musical selection is Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, Movement 4.
This is a great way to stay musically engaged with children while at home!
Some artwork will be selected to be featured at a special art gallery opening in the greater Phoenix area and to go on tour with Young Arts Arizona.
We encourage all teachers to facilitate this activity in their stay-at-home classrooms or in partnership with their school’s art teacher.
