Painting at School: A Handbook for Elementary and Secondary Education in Waldorf Schools
Children need color as much as they need music in their lives — authentic, vibrant color. “Painting at School” illustrates in full color how to introduce and sustain regular painting lessons at school so that youngsters can experience color profoundly and steadily. Painting is an essential part of Waldorf education, schooling the feelings of each child with living colors. The beauty of pure color informs the child’s soul and calls it to enrich the world with beauty and brightness. Expression, joy, technique, and direct color experiences are all part of a well-done painting lesson. Each chapter assists with new ideas for moving the child through a building vocabulary of painting. Both parents and teachers will enjoy the help that this book gives to lead our children through artistic experiences.
