Children will have fun “Painting to Chopin” in this sensory experience called “synesthesia.” Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sense. We look forward to the creative artwork children will produce while listening to Chopin.
