An Intensive Course for Waldorf Teachers and Parents and others wishing to explore a new and vital approach to color

This is the 5 1/2 day painting course offered annually to faculty and parents of Waldorf schools. Others wishing to develop their creative potential are invited as well. Painting exercises are geared to the specific needs of each participant, such as the grade they will teach and the level of experience they have with watercolor painting.

The approach taught in the summer courses is based on indications given by Rudolf Steiner to teachers and painters for an entirely new way of creating with color. Through it, a healthy balance is engendered in the individual’s physical organism, soul faculties and social relationships. Teachers find great relief knowing there is a painting method which can be grasped, which builds upon itself, which replaces arbitrariness, and which makes understandable the purpose of painting regularly with one’s class. They come away with a wealth of painting exercises to share in their classes during the coming school year.

The course is taught by Gail McManus. Gail 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 in the US and internationally.
