NEW COHORT BEGINS SUMMER 2022, Organized by West Coast Institute
July 3 – 22, 2022
This two and a half year, part-time program of professional Waldorf teacher education is offered to those who are seeking to teach out of an understanding of Waldorf Education and what it can contribute to children today. Throughout the program, studies in Anthroposophy and Waldorf Education are interwoven with artistic and practical subjects.
Students will study books on Anthroposophy, Waldorf Education, and other relevant texts. The emphasis will be on understanding all aspects of child development. The artistic courses have a two-fold purpose: to enhance personal self-development and creativity, and to provide a basis for the work of the class teacher. Courses in painting, eurythmy, speech and drama, storytelling, singing, music, clay modeling, woodwork and Spacial Dynamics, amongst others, will be offered. A major aim of the training is to awaken independent thinking, ignite enthusiasm and foster creativity.
