Why music helps art

We tried an experimental activity at school last week, based on a number of articles which talk about how listening to music helps children tap into their creativity.

The premise is simple – music soothes and relaxes the mind. A calm mind is key for imagination and the creative instinct to take over. Music is the best way to help children enter that state, in which they can explore their creativity.

This article states four key benefits of listening to music:

  1. It is a moon enhancer
  2. It relaxes the listener
  3. It sparks inspiration
  4. It helps increase focus

We decided to make the most of the weather and paint outdoors. Here are some pictures, if you’d like to see
