The Art Testers

The Art Testers is a large-scale, nationwide cultural project organised by The Finnish Cultural Foundation, providing free art experiences to as many as 60 000 secondary school eight-graders. Taking part in the project, UMO offers the students a chance to plunge into the world of cinema with a programme selected from the concert Blue Notes on Silver Screen. Before the concert the students will be introduced to UMO, jazz and big band music with the help of the UMO comic and concert doodle sheet.

Read the short comic illustrated by Christer Nuutinen here and print out the concert doodle sheet here. (Both only in Finnish.)

After the concert the youngsters can continue working on their doodle sheet, test their knowledge in the UMO Jazz Quiz and even write and carry out their own silent film!
