Watercolor Painting at IWS

Forms of nature really arise from the colors, and that drawing is therefore a process of abstraction. We should create in growing children a good mental picture and feeling for such things because this quickens the whole soul, creating for it a proper relationship with the outer world.

– Rudolf Steiner

Wet-on-wet watercolour painting is a technique taught in Waldorf schools and forms an important part of the Waldorf curriculum. Working with this technique provides not only a satisfying artistic experience; it also works therapeutically on children and adults.

Wet-on-wet watercolour painting is not about the creation of certain forms. Its intent is to experience glorious colour in its flow and movement while painting. It is a healing art, it can create a sense of inner harmony. Providing children with the opportunity to experience wet-on-wet watercolour painting enriches their inner life and helps the child to learn and grow to her or his potential.
