Our Logo

The MTPD logo was inspired by one of the children's pieces of artwork from out first Masters of Colour programme.

The children were thinking about the musical instrument playing animals they had seen in Chagall's paintings and about how music could sound like different colours. There were many brilliant animal instrumentalists but the canary playing the violin seemed to capture the essence of Make The Paint Dance.

The child's painting was then given to the artist Gail Button who designed and painted our logo. The logo is hand painted and uses gouache which was a favourite of Chagall's and the bird playing the violin with a paint brush brings together the music with the art.
