PAINT WHAT YOU HEAR

Music & Art Workshops

Paint What You Hear workshops are directed by musician Erica Rasmussen and visual artist Zakiya Kurdi. The workshops use classical and contemporary music and visual art to engage young people and adults in the arts, inviting them to respond to live music using painting and drawing.

DSC_8865 copyParticipants listen to live musicians and respond to the music exploring lines, shape, colour and their own imagination. Children learn about the elements of music and how to represent sound through artistic expression. The workshops are engaging, fun and messy!

The first Paint What You Hear workshops were held at ArtPlay in Melbourne in 2012 through the generous support of the City of Melbourne Arts Grant program. We have subsequently held workshops with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Education & Outreach Program, Melbourne Recital Centre, MPavilion, Royal Children’s Hospital, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Incinerator Gallery, Box Hill Community Arts Centre, Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland and Dress Up Attack! Festival in Sydney.

For upcoming workshops, please visit the Events page.

“Zakiya Kurdi and Erica Rasmussen were exceptional and I am still, hours later buzzing from the experience. The Paint What You Hear session was so engaging, so inspiring and had such an indescribable energy about it.” – ArtPlay mum.
