Art Studio Playlists to Paint, Draw or Dabble

The relationship between music and art is a long and storied one. The two disciplines have influenced each other in ways obvious and subtle for more than a century. Painters such as Wassily Kandinsky sought to emulate music’s effortless evocation of subtle, almost unnamable emotions, resulting in a new, totally abstract form of painting.

Ready to break the silence in your art studio? We’ve got you covered. Need a thought-provoking melody to help you come up with your next idea? How about an energetic tune to keep you focused — or something peaceful for sitting back and admiring your work?

Assemble the perfect art studio playlists from the suggestions below and be sure to see how 37 successful artists incorporate music into their creative processes (or not) in Inside the Art Studio, available as an eBook download.
