Description:

Competency Area: Curriculum & Instruction
Restricted to Education students through August 13; open to all students on August 14.

This course is for the personal and artistic development of the educator and for learning techniques to integrate the arts in the classroom. As counter effort to the powerful presence of the media in our schools, a living environment where the arts support our sense of beauty and our sense of who we are and who we strive to be, is essential for authentic growth. When we paint or draw, we open pathways to greater communication with ourselves and the students we teach. Through explorations with color, painting and drawing, as well as through lectures and discussions, participants will consider the role of art for people of various learning styles and dispositions. Guest presenter for highlights of the Waldorf Curriculum: Torin Finser.
