Independent Student Learning Activity

Visualize Music through Drawing

Grades 2 to 12

In this activity, students will explore Brooker’s painting Alleluiah, 1929, and analyze the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah, 1741. They will be tasked with creating a visual response to the music and will engage in a critical discussion, comparing and contrasting their visual interpretations with those of Brooker.
