Art and craft are an integral part of the Steiner curriculum at all stages of the education. They are used to engage the child in an interesting way on all topics. Children practice wet on wet painting experiencing the different colours individually and in combination.
Working with hands is an important area of the curriculum, harmonising and balancing the intellectual work undertaken by the children. Through craft certain qualities can be developed, such as perseverance and determination, concentration, an eye for beauty, colour and design, fine motor skills and particular technical skills.
In craft, the children work with fine quality natural materials to encourage care and respect for the handwork process.
