Learning to See Life, Developing the Goethean Approach to Science

The Goethean approach is not about opposition to traditional science; it is concerned with evolving the discipline of science further so that we can begin to understand life in a way that is modeled after life.

Children's paintings in flowing colors are displayed on these walls, and often there arc colored transparencies on windows, as well as baskets of dyed woolen yarn for knitting, and displays of colored beeswax that has been modeled. The impression may be intriguing and may raise questions in the viewer's mind about the use of color in a Waldorf school, particularly in the paintings the children do, and in the painting of the classroom walls.
