Day 1

Visual artist Helen Barry and violinist Gwendolyn Masin have spent the past months creating a programme designed for children that brings visual art and classical music into playful partnership. Gwendolyn and Helen believe that children can draw a path to their own inherent wisdom if their imagination is engaged. Children can be focused and inspired without constant need for stimulation - once they know how. The programme takes children on a journey through music (from Bach to Boulanger), art (Chagall to Van Gogh), art history, and music history.
With a particular focus on communication that is reflective of the core principles and approaches used by Visual Thinking Strategies, Gwendolyn and Helen help deepen learning through inquiry-based teaching. Discovering art, music, and in turn, themselves, children’s imagination and attention is engaged, resulting in meaningful transformation. Please bring along: some sheets of A4 paper and a biro or a coloured marker.
