Mixing Art and Music Mindfully

Help me give my students a chance to combine their love of art with music and mindfulness by helping us to purchase ukeleles for use in the artroom and in an afterschool art/music club.

My Students

My rural students are excited to learn about places and artists from across the world. They enjoying looking at and discussing diverse artworks. From these artworks, they learn techniques to try.

Students come into the art room excited to make their ideas come alive.

Our room functions as an art studio, filled with centers that they can visit. Drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and clay are available for my students to use as they work self-directed on what they care about most.

My Project

My students love it when I play my ukelele in my classroom. The mellow music helps them to focus on their work. Because of this, many have asked to learn to play the ukelele as well.

The combination of art and music will help students to experience the practice that it takes to develop skills in both disciplines.

Through practice, they will improve and be able to experience a state of flow- doing something challenging but also very engaging. The connection between art and music will engage more creative thinking and innovation in the artroom.

Both making art and playing ukelele are hobbies (or even careers) that students can use throughout their lives to add enjoyment and happiness.
