Contributions to a Methodical Schooling in Colour Experience
This unique workbook describes the early stages of training for painters, teachers, as well as for beginners. The stages are based on recommendations by Rudolf Steiner for the development of a renewed art of painting for our time. The book draws on Steiner’s indications for teaching painting in the first Waldorf school, his lectures on color and art, and sketches he made for painters. Together, they form a self-contained system of exercises for a new, spiritually alive art.
'What is postulated here is not the dogmatic laying down of a way of working. Rather the aim is to make evident one possible means of access to an experience of the colour world...and guide actual practice to Rudolf Steiner's sketch motifs - to their eminent educational power - for we recognize in them a path that can become of great significance to the developing human soul.' - From the Introduction This unique workbook describes the early stages of a training for painters, teachers, as well as total beginners. These stages are based on recommendations Rudolf Steiner gave for the further development of an art of painting suitable for our time. The sources are: Steiner's indications for the teaching of painting in the first Waldorf School, his colour and art lectures, and the sketches he made for painters. Together they form a self-contained system of exercises for a new art that is spiritually alive. The path that Gerard and Elisabeth Wagner have set forth - which leads to experience of the spiritual basis of artistic activity and strengthens the human being's creative potential - can serve as the means for a renewal of the art of painting out of the eternal and inexhaustible sources of the spirit.' - Sergei O. Prokofieff , from the Foreword
