Dots and Lines

Dots and Lines
  • Learning Goal: Students will compare smooth and detached music and experience the parallel in visual art of long and short lines or even dots.

    Tasks:

    • As students listened to a selection from Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1, they drew long, connected lines on their paper.
    • As students listened to a selection from Claude Debussy's Minstrels, they drew short lines or dots in a different color.
