Students at the 4th/5th grade level used what they were learning about in their regular classrooms as inspiration for their group-composed percussion compositions in music. The themes related to explorations, such as, space, oceans, Hawaii. In art, students brainstormed and developed their individual ideas within their music groups. Students replayed their music in the art room to draw further inspirations. As individuals, students painted abstract-expressionist watercolors and then wrote artist statements about their paintings as they relate to their music.
