Students encounter works by master artists and composers in this multi-sensory class. Over the course of the year, students learn about the lives of 4–8 artists and 4–8 composers and study multiple works from each. Students gain a listening repertoire of over a dozen classical scores and receive over a dozen full-color art prints, which they study in class through group discussion, written narration, and notebook drawings.
