An intensive course for Waldorf teachers and parents with Gail McManus.

Are you wondering how to develop a meaningful painting curriculum for your class? Do you have the wish to investigate the deeper significance of painting with children, which encourages a healthy balance in the child’s physical organism, soul faculties, and social relationships?

This six-day intensive course, based on the indications of Rudolf Steiner for a new direction in painting with youth and adults, provides the opportunity to explore an entirely new approach to color upon which the class teacher of grades 1 - 8, as well as the high school teacher, may develop his or her painting lessons. Teachers will come away with a wealth of painting exercises to share with their classes in the coming school year.

Gail McManus is a graduate of the Goetheanum Painting School, Dornach, Switzerland, the center for Rudolf Steiner’s impulse. She has 16 years experience as a Waldorf class teacher, painting with children on a weekly basis. Gail also has enjoyed leading high school art classes. This summer’s Painting Course will be one of many Gail has taught to teachers and parents in the US and internationally.
