Magical Music Art Box

Both art and music allow the artist to express their feelings and experiences…
In this art box we look at how a variety of artists old and new portray musical instruments and musicians; at how they interpret sound in visual form; at how they use colour and music in tandem in their work; and finally at how some artists even designed album covers for bands and musicians!

What's the story behind Magical Music?

Art and music share many things. Some musicians, such as Wagner, Duke Ellington and Beyonce, actually experience sounds as a series of colours and shapes! And many famous artists have credited music as a muse for their work. Matisse is said to have played the violin every day – claiming that the discipline it required helped his concentration when he was painting…

In this box children will make their own recycled guitar, create a jazz inspired collage, paint to music, make a boogie-woogie style abstract weaving, design musical stained glass windows, create their very own album cover, and finally draw what they think music actually looks like!

  • Clear instructions on seven art projects, appropriate for children of any age (4+ years), with tips to tailor each project for younger children.
