Evening Workshop on the Arts

Six consecutive Tuesday evenings following winter break
(2/24, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24, and 3/31)

Every day, the children are engaged in artistic expression. Teachers in their training practice all the arts, and continue to do so long after. To really understand the importance (and joy) of creating art, one must experience it.

Join Jim McClurkin for artistic activity and conversation in a series of six weekly workshops. We will explore a broad survey of the arts, including such things as beeswax, clay modeling, form drawing, geometric drawing, watercolor painting and veil painting. No experience is necessary! Each subject is easily adapted to the beginner or to those more experienced. Following last year's autumn and spring workshops, we had a number of requests for evening sessions. So we will meet on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at our Early Childhood Center in Inman Park (1015 Edgewood Avenue, 30307). There is a $25 materials fee. To register, please contact Caroline Hall at office@waldorfatlanta.org. Space is limited so sign-up early!

Foundation Studies

Throughout the year, our Foundation Studies group will offer special opportunities to hear guest speakers. Read more about the group here.

Nathaniel Williams is offering a public lecture on Friday, Feb 27, 2015 at 7pm
120 Years of the Philosophy of Freedom
a presentation by Nathaniel Williams

120 years ago the Philosophy of Freedom was first published in German. It counts as a major and unique chapter in the book of Rudolf Steiner's writing career. For anyone who reads his autobiography, the special place it occupied in his own view is also explicit. This is a presentation on the first forty years of Steiner's life, the major ideas of the book and how they relate to current discussions and challenges in contemporary thought and culture. Though many things have changed, and many books have not endured the last twelve decades, this book remains pertinent.

The lecture is free. Please rsvp to afoster@thirdbody.net so we can plan seating.
