Description:

Competency Area: Curriculum & Instruction
Required of and restricted to Waldorf students; others by written permission of the instructor provided to the Registrar?s Office via Antioch email.

Students in this course will learn to work with Goethean color theory and experience color free from the restrictions of outer form. The watercolor process, as used in Waldorf schools, provides a key to the artistic process that is an integral and necessary part of human development. Stages in the evolution of consciousness will be explored by painting out of various soul moods. This course also provides the background for the personal and artistic development of teachers and for their understanding of the painting curriculum for grades one through six. We will also look at examples from the Kindergarten and the upper elementary grades. Students will learn to translate a story into a painting, and develop experience in the wet-in-wet technique. We will focus on painting ?out of color?! (Rudolf Steiner)
