Class Six participates in Lancaster Art Walk

Last week, Susquehanna Waldorf School had the opportunity to support Lancaster's ArtWalk! The ArtWalk is a self-guided tour of downtown galleries held twice a year. Students from Class Six adorned the sidewalks outside of the Christiane David Gallery on Prince Street with geometric form drawings for the Oct 8-9th event.

Form drawing, freehand drawing of non-representational forms, is taught starting in Grade 1 and continues through the grades in Waldorf education,for the purpose of a child's development. According to an article by Rosemary Gebert on the topic, the effectiveness of form drawing is realized in the process, not the product. Said in other terms, it is the act of drawing that educates, not the result.

      

That said, we think our student's results were pretty great last weekend!

Not only was SWS able to support Lancaster's vibrant art community, but we contributed to the movement with the work of our own budding artists. Thank you to the Christiane David Gallery for hosting us.
