Picture the Music

Where will the music lead your students’ imaginations? This school year, Picture the Music invites grades K-6 to discover Dvořák’s masterpiece, Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” and respond with paintings and drawings that express creative thought and emotion.

Picture the Music is a FREE competition, aligned with both national and state standards. Finalists are honored at a special awards ceremony at Powell Hall on Wednesday, March 29, 2017, and featured in a traveling exhibition.

To participate, please view the Picture the Music 2017 teacher materials.

Artwork entries are due by February 4, 2017.
