Professional development for Waldorf teachers and homeschooling parents

In this workshop, grades 1-8 class and subject teachers will receive instruction in the basics of how to create beautiful chalkboard drawings and how to approach Main Lesson book drawings across the Waldorf lower and middle school curricula.

Using curricular themes, we will cover:

• Useful techniques for drawing with chalk
• Applying perspective drawing techniques to illustrations

• Drawing the human figure
• Methods for teaching children how to lay out a page
