Visual Arts -Painting , Nature Drawing and Color Theory  course based on Rudolf  Steiner’s exercises for artists.  Beginners and experienced artists welcome!

The course packet includes study materials  on color theory by Goethe, Kandinsky and Rudolf Steiner.The watercolor painting exercises and related questions for contemplation are a beginning in-depth study into the individualities of color and their dynamic relationships. Drawing exercises include charcoal , conte crayon and pastel work with darkness and light , the four elements and the kingdoms of nature. The 24 sessions are meant to last over 6 months, four hours per week, but they can be completed over a longer period of time if necessary.

Feedback on the 24 Session Creative Arts Correspondence Course I
 by Kathy L. Participant from Vienna , Maine, U.S.A.

"The Awakening Arts Correspondence Course is  wonderful because I can go at my own pace. It challenges my artistic knowing- while I am given a direction, I must rely on my own inner guidance to take me through the exercises. It is a perfect entry into understanding the artistic impulse. It  comes from within.
Carla views your work, always with careful commentary, honoring your journey and  transformational process. I see this course as part meditation, part practice and as a valuable study journey into the world of light, darkness and color.   It is demanding in the sense that you must rely on your own truth, you may be seeing honestly for the first time the natural world as it really is.  With your own courage and committment to it, the Awakening Arts course is a great opportunity to trust the artistic process and have a gentle, clear guide mapping the course!"
