This book marks the centenary of the first Waldorf School, established by Rudolf Steiner in Stuttgart in 1919. With around 1,150 Waldorf Schools and over 1,800 Waldorf Kindergartens established in over 60 countries, this book examines and analyses how the initial impulse of Steiner education has grown over the last century to become a worldwide alternative movement in education. The author documents and compares the growth and development of Waldorf schools and Steiner-inspired educational institutions around the world, and determines the extent to which the original underpinning philosophy has been maintained against the contexts and challenges of contemporary global trends in education. Within such diverse international contexts, it is significant that the schools retain such a distinctive identity, and clearly redefine how ‘alternative education’ can be viewed. This comprehensive volume will be of interest and value to scholars of Steiner education and Waldorf schools as well as alternative education more widely.

This book gives an overview of the Waldorf School teaching plan and art curriculum. The book thoroughly investigates many aspects of art that Rudolf Steiner spoke of in lectures, notes, and demonstrations. Particular emphasis is placed upon his work on color. Specific lessons are given for the elementary classes, and discussions of principles and various suggestions are given for the secondary classes. The curriculum leads the child through the intricacies of his or her physical and spiritual development, integrated through artistic and intellectual activities. In the lower classes students develop observational skills through imaging and imagining of fairy tales, myths, and legends. Artistic handling of nature, soul moods, and portraits are taught in the upper classes. This book is divided into three parts: (1) "The Basic Principles of Painting from the First to the Eighth Class" (Margrit Junemann); (2) "Lessons in Making Things that are both Practical and Artistic in Classes Nine to Twelve" (Fritz Weitmann); and (3) "Rudolf Steiner's Recommendations Regarding a New Kind of Art Education" (Fritz Weitmann). Full page color photograph examples from each lesson are provided. (LB)

This book brings together Steiner's philosophical, biodynamic and cultural contributions to education, where 'spirit' and ‘soul’ are the creative elements in human evolution. His thought is applied to selected examples of innovative artistic practice and pedagogy of the present. This volume is intended for researchers in the arts and education with an interest in Rudolf Steiner's huge influence on educational thought and policy.This is an urgent point in time to reflect on the role of arts in education and what it might mean for our souls. An accessible yet scholarly study of interdisciplinarity, imagination and creativity is of critical widespread interest now, when arts education in many countries is threatened with near-extinction.

Charles Rose embraces the vast and varied panorama of the American landscape. Sensitive to his sites, the architect recognizes the poetry of every locale and uses his fascination with place as a central character in his designs. Regionalism, a term at times used to underrate architecture that is seen as too parochial or that eschews universal "truths" (most often those of modernism) in favor of a local style, becomes a practice of the highest order in the hands of Rose, one of America's most accomplished young architects. With both the rigor of geometry and a commitment to ecosensitivity, his work is as attuned to the dense urban fabric of New York City as it is to the rural outback of Wyoming. The profile of his award-winning Paintrock Camp in Hyattville, Wyoming, follows the contours of a nearby canyon; Roses's adaptive reuse of an industrial structure in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood preserves the existing streetscape while creating a seamless flow between inside and out; and the shape of his United States Port of Entry project in Del Rio, Texas, was determined by the scorching Texan sun and features sustainable landscapes. With surprising use of volumes, materials, and geometries, agile movement of spaces, and an active language of planes and lines, Rose creates dynamic, expressive architecture that reminds us that buildings can be both sensitive to their locale and embrace the timeless principles of geometry, material, light, and shadow.

The handwork and practical arts curriculum in Waldorf schools stimulates children's creative powers. At the same time, it establishes an aesthetic confidence by developing the child's will -- that part of us which interacts with the world, and lays the foundation for our thinking.This masterly book argues that only by working with their hands does our children's cognition develop as it should. It examines the craft curriculum from Years 1 to 8, and all the way through High School. This is a wonderful curriculum resource for Waldorf teachers which includes numerous practical projects, as well as exploring the particular benefits that the activities have.
