Waldorf Art for Beginners has the answers you are looking for!
Part One: Not all that glitters...
On our first day, we will discuss the various materials needed to get you started. We'll spend some time exploring which items are worth spending more money on (and why), versus those that can be DIY-ed.
Part Two: Watercolor painting 101...
Join us as we take you through a beautiful and simple painting exercise. Down the road, this exercise can become the foundation from which other paintings will flow! We will also cover topics such as soaking papers, mixing paint, setting up your painting station, and caring for your materials.
Part Three: Block Crayons 101...
On day three we will take you through the techniques you'll need to get started creating beautiful drawings and main lesson pages. We'll go over the care and cleaning of your crayons, as well as point you in the direction of additional resources.
Part Four: Chalkdrawing basics 101...
Join us as we explore the basic chalk strokes you'll need to get started. Then, dive a bit deeper and work step-by-step through a beautiful chalk landscape drawing! We will also cover how to DIY your own chalkboard at home.

"This has been such a great set of videos! I was really surprised at the technique here, in particular about not drawing outlines, which is what most of us traditionally have been taught. It's amazing to see what comes from NOT doing that and I'm excited to try this out. Thanks again!"

Frequently asked questions:
What does "self-paced" mean?
We created this course with your busy life in mind. Once you register, you can access our classroom over on Ruzuku whenever it is convenient for you! Forever! Brian & Robyn will check-in to answer questions every couple of days.
What materials will I need?
On the first day of the course we will go over the various options (& price ranges) that are available out there for stocking up on the materials you will need. We will explain what supplies are truly necessary, vs. what supplies are awesome, but that you can initially survive without. For this reason we are NOT providing a materials list ahead of time.
I am already familiar with the use of watercolor paint, block crayons & chalk. Is this the right course for me?
This course will be most useful for those who are new to the tools you mentioned. For those with previous experience and looking for advanced instruction, we recommend our other courses, which dive deeper into more advanced techniques.
Do I need a high-speed internet connection to view the course videos?
Yes, all videos are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or on very slow connections (and we cannot give refunds if you are having issues viewing the videos due to your internet connection). Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine.
What is your Refund Policy for Waldorf Art for Beginners?
Due to the instant, all-access and digital nature of this course, as well as the discount code offered within it, there are no refunds.
