Childrens Art Week: Oriel Everywhere!

Join Oriel Myrddin Gallery for ‘Oriel Everywhere’,  a musical podcast where you can listen and respond to music inspired by the natural world.

Take time out for a little bit of mindful drawing with a beautiful composition ‘Perlau Glaw’ inspired by the rain and played on the harp by Mared Emlyn.

Before the podcast:

You will need:

  • A piece of paper
  • Pencil or pen
  • Coloured pencils or pens

You need to have a little space to work where you can get comfortable, an outside space is perfect for being inspired by nature. If you can’t get outside, try sitting near a window. Somewhere quiet would be great, otherwise try listening using headphones to help you concentrate.

This activity will take you about 8 minutes.

We think this activity would be great for KS1 students and KS2 students might enjoy it too.

 

Our second installment of the ‘Oriel Everywhere podcast series features ‘Airstream’ inspired by the wind and played on the clarinet, harp and piano.

You will need:
