Pasadena Waldorf School High School Visual & Performing Art Show Showcases Wide Array of Coursework
On June 4, 2015, a full house of students, teachers, parents, and community members attended the annual, multimedia, interdisciplinary 2015 Visual & Performing Art Show presented by the Pasadena Waldorf School High School students. With every student participating, the show featured a wide variety of artistic coursework from every grade.
The 9th grade presented Basketry, Puppetry, Black & White Drawing, and Black & White Photography works; 10th grade displayed collected works from their Weaving, Painting, and Jewelry Making courses; and the 11th Grade exhibited Graphic Design, Sculpture, Color Photography, and Woodworking projects. The chorus and mixed music ensembles, each consisting of every PWS high school student, performed several pieces from their repertoire of work from the school year.
Waldorf Education fosters in its students a love for art and application of artistic principles in every aspect of academics and everyday life, promoting creative problem-solving skills that benefit the students in an array of situations.
Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, offers an inspired education to students from Early Childhood (Parent-Child, Preschool, and Kindergarten) through High School. Developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, Waldorf Education is based on an understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child. Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child—the heart and the hands, as well as the head. With over ninety years of experience and over 1000 schools worldwide, Waldorf Education is one of the world’s leading educational movements.
