Family Potluck and Game Nights
Make plans to join these family events! Feb. 28th 6-8:30 and March 21, 6-8:30pm in Hazelwood Hall.
WELCOME ALL TO A NEW TERM OF SINGING! Join a group of voices from our adult Waldorf community gathering for enjoyment of beautiful music and a selection of songs and works of varied periods and genres. No choral experience or note reading skills necessary but participants are encouraged to attend as many rehearsals as possible to prepare for an informal performance at the end of term. Eleanor Winship
is a much in-demand, conservatory-trained Waldorf music teacher and teacher trainer who has helped people at all levels deepen their connection with their inner musicality at schools, colleges, and institutes across several continents. Ms. Winship's anthroposophical approach allows her to successfully blend voices of all ages and abilities into a rich tapestry of harmony and music appreciation.
Tuesdays: January 7, February 4, March 4, April 1, at 7:30pm, Music Room
The role of handwork in the community is one that serves many purposes beyond the creation of art and useful objects. When people come together in the common purpose of creating something beautiful, the connections that are forged in the process become an integral part of that beauty. For this reason, sewing circles have always been an important part of community building. We welcome the participation of all parents with all levels of sewing experience.
Saturdays: January 11, February 8, March 8, April 26, May 17 from 3:00-5:00pm, Hospitality Room
Workshop on the Arts with Jim McClurkin
Every day, the children are engaged in artistic expression. Teachers in their training practice all the arts, and continue to do so long after. To really understand the importance (and joy) of creating art, one must experience it. Join Jim McClurkin
for artistic activity and conversation in a series of six weekly workshops. We will explore a broad survey of the arts, including such things as beeswax, clay modeling, form drawing, geometric drawing, watercolor painting and veil painting. No experience is necessary! Each subject is easily adapted to the beginner or those more experienced.
There will be a $25 materials fee for the course. Checks should be made out to WSA, with "Arts Workshop" in the memo line.
To register, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
