Art of Music
Children and youth are invited to join artist/educators Harold Pearse and Virginia Stephen in a hands-on workshop exploring the relationship between visual art and music. Participants will be encouraged to draw and paint inspired by live performance by the Iris Ensemble. The Iris Ensemble will be in residence, providing inspiration through their music and providing subject matter for figure drawing and instruments. The workshop will be at the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance. The resulting work will be exhibited over the weekend at LAMP.
