Music for kids to paint to
October 4, 2013 2:17 PM Subscribe
I need to choose excerpts from different types of songs for children to paint to. They need to be different in tone, tempo and mood. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, but instrumental is probably best. The idea is that the children will have a paper divided into parts and as each song excerpt plays they can paint with colors and strokes that reflect the mood of the piece.

Please tell me the name of the song, the artist and the general mood you think it has.
If there is a particular part of the song that you think is great, let me know where in the song it is.
The songs need to be available in iTunes.
I was thinking of dividing the paper in quarters and playing 4 excerpts, but if the 2 songs were really distinct from each other, maybe that would do.
I haven't done this activity before-how long do you think each excerpt should be? This is a workshop type event where people can come and go, not a classroom. I don't want to keep people too long, but I want to give the kids enough time with the project.
