Auburn Symphony Orchestra and Interurban Center for the Arts have partnered to create arts education videos for children. These videos are designed for children in pre-k and elementary school. Since they make use of materials commonly found at home, these projects are accessible to almost every child. Videos are free at www.auburnsymphony.org/learnfromhome.
First you’ll be introduced to the music. Concertmaster Emilie Choi is charming as she plays excerpts of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and talks about the story the music tells. Can you hear the cold gusts of wind, the snowfall, the stomping of wintry boots in the violin solo?
Viewers are then guided step-by-step through an art project by teaching artist Christy Caravaglio. In the winter program, you’ll make a wintery owl painting complete with snowfall. In the autumn video you’ll paint trees with beautiful seasonal colors. The instructions are simple and yet leave room for creativity like the art docent lessons the ICA leads in many of the region’s schools.
Auburn Symphony offers many links to learning and listening resources on their website, auburnsymphony.org. Interurban Center for the Arts offers art lessons and information on their website, greenrivercollegefoundation.org/ica.
