Visual Arts and Sculpture

Course Availability: Full Time




The Visual Arts course is a time of intense artistic exploration to rediscover creativity, awaken imaginative capacities and develop new ways of seeing the world. We will search to uncover the essential elements of each art form, through experiencing what lives in the three-dimensional world of sculpture, the two-dimensional world of colour and the play of line and tone in drawing. This will enable us to find a secure ground for our own individual creativity and enliven our appreciation of nature, earlier cultures and the art of today. 

The course provides a balanced programme of clay modelling, painting, drawing, wood and stone carving, history of art, Goethean observation, study groups and eurythmy.

The course is open to anyone, with or without artistic experience. Some familiarity with the work of Rudolf Steiner would be an advantage but is not required.
