I am working on a lesson plan to introduce my students
to Kandinsky and abstract painting (5th & 6th grade)
the idea is to show them his work while listening to
some Wagner and then allow them to make some sketches
and paintings to more contemporary - later 20th C
music - jazz, blues, etc.
But I would REALLY like to be able to relate his
composition paintings to specific music compositions -
it seems like when I took art history that we learned
that some of the composition paintings were direct
representations of specific pieces of music - but I
don't know what paintings to link to which pieces of
music - can anyone help me or suggest a resource that
would help me with this?
