NATURE OF SIGHT & SOUND

The Nature of Sight and Sound
Look, Listen and Learn
 

"Why things look the way they sound
      and sound the way they look."
 

This project is integrated with the administrative staff as well as teachers in:
art, music, science, math, english, history... 

The Nature of Sight and Sound is an Interdisciplinary Arts-in-Education project that clearly shows the connection of art and music to nature using technology to record sounds and visions for participants to create their own artistic music video.  They can also have a video performance and so much more... depending upon the length of a given residency.  Some of the most important benefits of this project is to: develop ones creative intelligence so one can combine what they have learned with what they feel.  The result is learning how the creative process can be one of the greatest experiences one can have in life.  When a visual composition has been created, it will serve as a catalyst for the sounds they will create as well for these projects.  One talent will support and help develop other talents.

 

What is also really wonderful about this project is that the culminating experiences offer an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the talents within a school.  Confidence grows through real experiences.  Students feel so self-empowered that they realize that they can actually become professional composers, videographers, writers and artists.

Our coaching staff will support the teachers to bring out the talent and potential that exists within each of us.  What these young people produce by the end of this experience will be recorded on DVD and given to each class and/or participant.  This will serve as a keepsake and reminder of an experience that will affect them for a lifetime.
