Chroma Collective spent time with students in both Keister and Stone Spring Elementary as part of an HCPS arts integration residency, blending visual arts with music making in a participatory, hands-on experience. The trio helped students explore the intersection of visual art concepts - line, color, movement, story - with music concepts and performance. During the session, students were prompted to paint based on the music they heard and created six pieces of artwork. At the end, students held up their favorite piece of artwork and the trio improvised, playing and singing music that represented the individual student artist creation.
Performing and commissioning music from historically marginalized composers, Chroma Collective aims to "immerse audiences in participatory, creative art and music making, inviting them to be artists themselves." We were thrilled to offer this experience for HCPS students to help them find the artist within themselves.
