A deepening of the practice of sculpture (clay modeling) in its fundamental artistic principles constitutes the basis of this course. The importance and relevance of artistic exercises as supportive of adolescent development are discussed, especially in relation to the content of Rudolf Steiner’s Foundations of Human Experience. Appropriate curriculum indications are included.
Following an introduction of the day’s theme, classes consist of demonstrations and guided exercises, as well as individual work on given themes and some group projects.
