Arts and the Child: Grades 3-5 and above
Spring 2015 quarter
All children enjoy singing, painting, and dancing, yet as we grow up this natural ability becomes suppressed and often lost. The spring course is designed with a focus on children during the transition from grades 3-5 and above. The objective of the course is to reach out to the inner child in students and provide opportunities to support children in need of care and education in the community. Lectures, studio arts, research, field trips and volunteer work with children in the community will develop students’ competency as artists, parents, and educators. The course will examine practices of education and self-cultivation from Eastern and Western perspectives. Course work will also allow students to pursue independent projects. Specifically, in Spring quarter, we will be helping 8th grade students of the Olympia Waldorf School to produce a play, "The Water Engine," by David Mamet. The play will be performed at Evergreen on May 15 and 16.
Credits will be awarded in arts and human development.
