Event Description

2018-03-17 10:30:00 2018-03-17 12:00:00 Australia/Sydney Paint what you hear Paint what you hear Queens Gardens Shepparton Shepparton Festival [email protected]


Paint What You Hear workshops are directed by musician Erica Rasmussen and visual artist Zakiya Kurdi. The workshops use classical and contemporary music and visual art to engage young people and adults in the arts, inviting them to respond to live music using various art forms, such as drawing and painting. Participants listen to live musicians and respond to the music exploring lines, shape, colour and their own imagination. Children learn about the elements of music and how to represent sound through artistic expression. The workshops are highly engaging and fun.

Our workshops are flexible and are open to collaboration. We are experienced and comfortable working with all ages, from toddlers through to adults. We are also more than happy to tailor the workshop to suit the environment. 

The first Paint What You Hear workshops were held at ArtPlay in Melbourne in 2012 through the generous support of the City of Melbourne Arts Grant program. We have subsequently held workshops with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Education & Outreach Program, Melbourne Recital Centre, MPavilion, Royal Children’s Hospital, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland, Incinerator Gallery, Box Hill Community Arts Centre and Dress Up Attack! Festival in Sydney.

Feedback and Reviews

Busy City Kids Review:

“Love love loved it! Kids let loose and were stimulated by things they aren’t normally exposed to. Thank you!”

“Zakiya Kurdi and Erica Rasmussen were exceptional and I am still, hours later buzzing from the experience. The Paint What You Hear session was so engaging, so inspiring and had such an indescribable energy about it.”

“Fantastic combination of different musical instruments and sounds, and applications!! Loved getting messy and feeling free as well as the more structured beginning. Great guidance to achieve the goal (painting to music). A sense of freedom with the different mediums (music and art).”
