Evening Workshop on the Arts

September 16, September 23, September 30, October 7, October 21, October 28

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 to those more experienced. Following last year's autumn and spring workshops, we had a number of requests for evening sessions. So we will begin the year that way, meeting on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Hospitality Room, starting on September 16th. There is a $25 materials fee. To register, please contact Caroline Hall at office@waldorfatlanta.org. Space is limited so sign-up early!

Crystal Bowl Meditation

Tuesday, December 2 at 7:30pm
Hazelwood Hall

The holidays are a time of community, family, and festivity and at times, they can also leave us feeling a little drained, as we deal with increased social activity and all the preparations of the season. Take a small break for yourself and join us for an evening of restoration and relaxation! Come make a cozy space for yourself in Hazelwood Hall and let go as Kathy Lytle plays her crystal bowls for an hour. You will leave a much different person -- more relaxed, open, and renewed.

Kathy Lytle is a healing arts practitioner who uses quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls to help release tension and energy blockages, allowing people to open once again to life, love, and laughter! Give yourself the gift of bliss this season! Please bring a pillow, yoga mat, or blanket to make yourself comfortable. You will be so glad that you did!
