Paint the Music Now

The power of art combined with music brings joy to one’s soul. While dedicated to the creative development of children with autism, the program is enjoyable for children of all backgrounds.

Paint the Music Now introduces:
- Primary Colors
- Body Movement
- Brush Strokes
- Shapes and Form
- Coordination
- Concentrated Focus
All to the beat of the music!

Classes consist of using three of the five senses – Touch, Hearing, and Sight. There are no rules… simply reaching the children’s creativity through the music and splash of colours allows a new dimension of inspirational direction. Classes are 45 minutes in length, with occasional five-minute breaks to shake the hands and feet to relax. The class is musical and lively, resembling an aerobic environment in an art studio. Painting the Music involves your mind by blending colors fast, to the beat, letting the music inspire your strokes, moves and listening to the different sounds and beat.
The class concludes with ‘taking a bow’, as these are performing artists.
Tailored for any child - with a variety of music from Mozart to Pop - Paint the Music Now is also especially effective and enjoyed by anyone including adults. Paint the Music Now is art without boundaries.  Parents are invited to the final lesson to witness their children showcase their new found artistic expression.
The course is open to any child ages 3 to Adult.
