Visual Arts 59: Responding to Art Through Music

5:38

What is the possible relationship between visual arts and music?  Musicians offer their musical response to examples of modern art.  Consider viewing the video without sound first and have students consider music that comes to their mind as they view the paintings.  Then view the video again, this time with the sound included, and compare student music choices to what they hear from the musicians in the video.  Have students discuss why they picked the music they did as well as their responses to the paintings and to the music played by the musicians.
