This workshop explores the connections and commonalities between visual arts, music and dance through the lens of the famed Bauhaus painter Paul Klee.
A talented violinist himself, Klee’s paintings are filled with allusions to dreams, music, dance, and poetry. We’ll discover the musical and kinesthetic elements in Klee’s works, and then play around with some techniques to transform these elements into sound and movement. Extending sonic possibilities by building instruments from simple materials, we’ll compose and perform music inspired by specific paintings, then transfer those concepts to dance by creating and performing choreographies based on Klee’s works.
Course includes a Professional Development Certificate
(6 credit hours), printed materials, catered breakfast and lunch.
