Color of Sound Visits Page Elementary

SPRINGFIELD, OR – Page Elementary students learned about the connection between sound and color with “Artie the Art Bus.” Students were asked to listen to classical music and create an abstract drawing based on the music. It’s called synesthesia when a person associates what they hear with a color. The “Color of Sound” program was sponsored by the Eugene Symphony. River Road Park & Recreation District provided “Artie” and art teacher Melanie Pearson, who conducted the exercised. The artwork will be on display in April at a Eugene Symphony performance in April.Artie the Art Bus
