The Sound of Art - Engaging Children with Music and Art Day 2 (21st January 2021)

Gwendolyn Masin, Helen Barry

The Music Lesson Henri Matisse

Day 2 (continued from 20/1/21)

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. All children aged 6-11 welcome, accompanied by an adult. Only ten places available. We will have a waiting-list. In case you’ve missed your space, please write to us at so we can let you know when we will perform the next programme.

Please bring along: some sheets of A4 paper and a biro or a coloured marker.

Music programme and art works shown and discussed during the course of the two days will be printed here after the first class on 20 January 2021 and remain online for your reference for one week after the sessions.
