Threefold Social Ideas & Spirituality in Waldorf Education with Patrice Maynard (AWSNA). Do threefold social ideals describe the path of spiritual evolution for human beings today? Welcome to an adventure in discovering and practicing the ideas and practices that earn Waldorf Education the right to call itself a revolution! The anthroposophical-spiritual roots of Waldorf education are asking for a revolution in consciousness, a change in thinking from analytical to morphological and pictorial. We will explore how this applies to life in a Waldorf school - from lesson planning to block planning to the threefold operation of the whole school! Singing, rhythmic activities and role-playing will complement our developing imaginations of threefold life. Eurythmy with Rachel Schmid.

PAINTING WITH CHILDREN IN WALDORF SCHOOLS An intensive course for Waldorf teachers and parents with Gail McManus. Are you wondering how to develop a meaningful painting curriculum for your class for the coming school year? 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 may develop his or her painting lessons. Blackboard drawing instruction will be included as well.
