June 12th through 16th 2023 from 9:00am to 5:00pm

Over the course of five days, we will reach back to far distant times in earth evolution and explore creative processes that have formed our world over eons and can be imaginatively, meditatively investigated and felt within us even today. This course is based on Rudolf Steiner’s book Inner Experiences of Evolution (Steiner Books). We will work with inks, acrylics, and oil. Step by step instructions guide participants into the basics of oil painting as well as multiple techniques of underpainting, blending, runs, textures, and glazes. As we work, we will discuss composition, color, and how painting can be a path to a clearer understanding of large, evolutionary reality. The course welcomes participants of all skill levels.

Sliding scale fee: $450.00 – 800.00, all materials will be provided for a $70.00 materials fee. Please feel free to bring favorite brushes and canvas for a greater variety of sizes and creative possibilities.
