New Essay by David Adams, 2014

An Overview History of Anthroposophical Visual Arts in the USA
by David Adams, 2014

Rudolf Steiner  Weaving Light


















At the turn of the twentieth century a radical spirit
of change began to sweep through the established
forms of visual art. Artists longed to forge new languages
of art working out of pure color and pure form, expressing
the essential, invisible reality of their subjects and not
only an imitation of their outer sensory appearance. Rudolf
Steiner (1861-1925) shared this progressive mood
of absolute reorientation and change among artists in
middle Europe, but he felt that the changes beginning to
manifest required the artist to grow attentive to the world
of the spirit in a newly objective, concrete, and scientific
manner and to develop new means of expression to reveal
something of this world through works of art.

Here is a link to the entire essay with many pictures.
Kula Makua—Adult Waldorf Education Presents:
A Visual Arts Intensive—
Painting and Drawing for Teachers
with Van James

Sunday, June 28 to Friday, July 3, 2015
Honolulu, Hawai’i





A unique six-day drawing and painting retreat for teachers, artists, therapists and parents will take place in Hawai’i this summer from June 28 to July 3, 2015. The course will look at how children first learn to draw and paint and how to best promote these arts with techniques and lessons appropriate to the developmental stages of the child. A Waldorf approach, appropriate to any educational setting, will be utilized with special attention to Rudolf Steiner’s ideas and some of the latest research on child development in connection with the arts.

Due to the special nature of Hawai’i and its spirit of place, these intensive classes will be held mornings only so that participants can have their afternoons free to explore the beauty of the island of O’ahu. The artistic sessions will be held at the Honolulu Waldorf School, MaKai Campus, 5257 Kalaniana’ole Highway, 96821, in an ocean-side art studio. The school is located on a bus route and a selection of restaurants is located directly across the street.
