Medium: charcoal (soft pastels)
Description: While our band at school was working on Frank Ticheli’s Angels in Architecture symphony, the band director asked my art class if we would create drawings with the same theme, so we could showcase them outside the auditorium during their performance. We agreed, and all of us researched a specific statue to draw in charcoal to create a sort of mysterious, spooky, and regal mood that goes with the music. After all of the drawings were done, we traveled over to the band room to hear the band perform and show them our artwork. Wow! Once we heard the symphony, we were completely amazed! One of my friends with her gorgeous soprano voice even sung at the beginning. Hearing everything in person and seeing all of our drawings on the slideshow while the band was performing was definitely a treat, and it was also great to have our whole Fine Arts department work together!
