The benefits of art
Frank Marshall highlights that the visual nature of art can act as a stronger stimulus than simply providing students with a title. Similarly, its non-musical nature allows it to provoke discussion and lend shape to a piece of music.
As well as providing suggestions for visits to galleries, Frank provides nine examples of paintings that teachers can use in the classroom.
