Invoking The Imagination: Soundscapes

with Samantha Whelan Kotkas
Subtitles available in English and French

In this video, teaching artist Samantha Whelan Kotkas explains how to inspire creativity and imagination with storyboards and soundscapes. As an example, Samantha demonstrates how sound patterns can be applied to personal experiences to create a piece of music. Samantha also shows how to bring student illustrations to life by creating soundscapes.

This video is part of a four-part series on invoking the imagination through the arts for students of all ages. In this series, Samantha shares different ways music educators can invoke the imagination of others, create an environment that supports the discovery of individual artistic voice, and help people articulate their ideas in and through an art form like music.
