It was an Exhibition on 2nd October 2012
Run by lead artist Erica Rasmussen at ArtPlay.
There was also a band performance.
IT was a simple yet fun exhibition. All we had to do, is paint along to the music.
Say, if it was sweet, smooth classical music, you paint a stroke something like this:
Or if it was crazy, full-on heavy metal, you would paint this:
or if it was something in-between, you would paint a brush stroke like so:
Here are a few pictures from the paint what you hear exhibition:

I went to this on the 13th November 2011 (workshop) followed by a party on the 26th November.
There was a DJ (Disc Jockey), VJ (Video Jockey) and a Producer. At the workshop, we split into groups.
My group stayed with the DJ’s and learnt about the special equipment that they used. We got to have turns at using the equipment.
When we were with the VJ, we learned how to combine pictures together, and attach cool borders to them. We also made some of our own art, while the other group put our artwork under the projector and mixed it to music.
2 weeks later we went with our families to the DJ Art Kids Party where we got to see our creations displayed on a big screen while we danced to cool music. There was even some Willy Wonka music mixed in – which was interesting!
I thought that this activity was fun and enjoyable, and I think that it was great 🙂
