Course 1: This is a studio course. It is designed to increase and refine the student's practical skills, pedagogical understanding and inner attitude. It also provides an opportunity for personal growth in artistic expression through painting. The principle method of instruction involves the teacher's demonstration of a technique and the student's own practice of the technique. Group and/or individual review of student work completes each session. Discussion based on required readings support the student's understanding of the painting curriculum and other pedagogical issues. A written summary of the student's reflections on the painting exercises and the student's own body of artistic work are reviewed at the end of the course. Course 2: This course is designed to increase and refine the student's practical skills, pedagogical understanding and inner attitude, building on the experience of Painting I. Veil painting techniques are presented by instructor. Students work on own paintings supported by individual and/or group critiques at the end of each session. Waldorf painting curriculum, Goethe's color theory and practical considerations of classroom painting are reviewed. The end of the course is marked by a final review of student artistic work and a school exhibition of student work. Students are observed by an instructor and/or class teacher during the student's independently executed painting classes. This observation forms part of the students' end of the course review.
