Fine Arts Program
Walk into the Waldorf School of Garden City, and you will find yourself in a world of art – visual, musical, theatrical, you name it. Making art unleashes the imagination, lets creativity take over and frees a child to learn the most ‘un-artlike’ subjects in a powerful and lasting way. The journey through the four year required visual arts program at the Waldorf School of Garden City allows students to make creative, personal responses to a wide range of themes: nature study and portraiture, social issues and mixed media work which deepens aesthetic understanding. Painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture are the principle disciplines and can be developed in many ways. Students explore watercolour, acrylics, pastels, charcoal. The work of other artists who have worked with similar themes forms an integral element to the study and informs the students’ work within the context of this aesthetic discipline.
