Drawing and Painting in Rudolf Steiner Schools.
Junemann, Margit; Weitmann, Fritz
This book gives an overview of the Waldorf School teaching plan and art curriculum. The book thoroughly investigates many aspects of art that Rudolf Steiner spoke of in lectures, notes, and demonstrations. Particular emphasis is placed upon his work on color. Specific lessons are given for the elementary classes, and discussions of principles and various suggestions are given for the secondary classes. The curriculum leads the child through the intricacies of his or her physical and spiritual development, integrated through artistic and intellectual activities. In the lower classes students develop observational skills through imaging and imagining of fairy tales, myths, and legends. Artistic handling of nature, soul moods, and portraits are taught in the upper classes. This book is divided into three parts: (1) "The Basic Principles of Painting from the First to the Eighth Class" (Margrit Junemann); (2) "Lessons in Making Things that are both Practical and Artistic in Classes Nine to Twelve" (Fritz Weitmann); and (3) "Rudolf Steiner's Recommendations Regarding a New Kind of Art Education" (Fritz Weitmann). Full page color photograph examples from each lesson are provided. (LB)
