Rosenberg, Harold. The Anxious Object: Art Today and Its Audience (includes artist’s statements). New York: Horizon Press, 1964. Music can also be used to teach basic scientific principles. The physics of sound are very relevant to children who play instruments. Music lessons can be a great way to discuss the science of sound waves, sympathetic, and harmonic vibrations. Playing an instrument is also a very physical activity. Drums, for example, involve a lot of large-scale movements and incorporate both the arms and legs.

Edgar Degas was born in Paris on the 19th July 1834. He is mainly associated with the French Impressionists, and is best known for his delicate paintings and pastel drawings of ballet dancers.

Movement: The bands form lines along which the eye moves quickly. Contrast: Organic versus geometric, black versus white. Space: The black is seen as infinite space, but the vertical bands stops the eye from going back into it. The vertical bands appear to be behind the white and organic bands because they are interrupted and therefore perceived as overlapped.
