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.
