Event description

Description

Overview:

Informative and lively, Sunbridge Waldorf Weekends are designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and basics of Waldorf Education. Emerson Waldorf School is excited to host the upcoming Waldorf Weekend experience on our campus October 27 - October 28, 2017. These popular workshops include a discussion of the Waldorf curriculum and how it relates to the growing child, an exploration of the anthroposophical ideas that serve as the underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse, and a look at Rudolf Steiner’s insights into human development. In addition to presentation and conversation, participants enjoy hands-on artistic activities common to the Waldorf experience, such as music, movement, and drawing, and will have time to ask your most pressing questions. Workshop participants leave with a deeper understanding of and a greater appreciation for Waldorf Education and a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.

Sunbridge Waldorf Weekends are open to all, but are especially relevant to anyone interested in a career in Waldorf Education, for new and prospective Waldorf community members, including parents, grandparents, staff, and board members. Past attendees have also included students of education, public and private school teachers, and homeschooling parents.

The Waldorf Weekend will begin with an Opening Talk on October 27, 2017 at 5:30pm that is FREE and OPEN to all. Stay around after the talk to see the talents of Emerson Waldorf High School students in action when they perform in our Fall Open Mic. The weekend will continue with a registration required workshop on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 9am - 3pm. There are also opportunities for Saturday workshop participants to observe Emerson Waldorf classrooms in action on Friday morning.
