Musical Composition
through the art of Bertram Brooker

Grades 2 to 12

Throughout his career Bertram Brooker (1888–1955) looked to capture the ephemeral and magical qualities of music in his paintings. Several of his works explore specific pieces of music or attempt to convey an experience of sound on the canvas. In this guide the art of Brooker is used to explore musical forms, terminology, and structure, and it guides students in activities that allow them to find connections between visual art and music and to build an understanding and appreciation of both disciplines.
