The Nature Mood Sketches of Rudolf Steiner
PRESENTATION BY HANS SCHUMM
Amid the early 20th Century’s “Abstract Art” movements, Rudolf Steiner offered a new and different approach to the art of painting – a technique he called “painting out of the color.”
In 1922, he created training sketches for Henni Geck, who led a painting school in Dornach, Switzerland, to further elaborate on what he meant by his suggestion. Gerard Wagner, a student of hers, took up these sketches and developed them into the basis for a systematic training in painting.
A detailed overview about the history, content, and how to work with the sketches artistically will be given, including practical painting demonstrations.
“Art is a revelation of sacred laws of nature
without which it would remain forever hidden.” ~ Goethe
