Blend two elements of expression in this highly unique and enticing workshop, one in which we create art inspired by music performed live by the Aspen Music Festival and School. Embark on a journey into artmaking and musical discovery. New materials are used each day to capture a variety of musical elements, including the images of woodwinds, the rhythms of percussion, and the texture of strings. We create our own artful instruments investigating different patterns and beats, as well as mixed media collage and paintings. Learn the properties of each instrument and what motivates our musicians to choose them. Tuning our imaginations, we create our own masterpieces!
