The haunting songs of Ella Fitzgerald, the liquid cadenzas of Miles Davis, and the staccato tempos of Chick Corea paint one great idea: Music is one of the most abstract forms of expression along with (abstract) painting. This studio class in abstract art applies the sounds of great jazz music as an accompaniment to the making of nonfigurative images. Listen to hot jazz (red), soulful jazz (yellow), and cool jazz (blue) in the studio as it opens the door to the soul. The objective of the class will be to produce paintings that feel like music. All media is acceptable. We will listen to three performers in each session.
