The goal of artistic activities in Waldorf schools is to educate students to become creative people rather than artists.
In my work I wanted to show the uniqueness of art in this age where the increasingly advanced technology distracts us from the traditional artistic techniques. Children in development are curious and full of energy; I choose play as a method of teaching because a playful mind provides an infinite number of possibilities which helped me present this new media to the students. For the most of them that was the first experience with graphic arts and they learned it's basics through play along with my leadership. The art tend to mimic nature and the children tendencies need regular care in order to develop new skills. My goal in working with the students was to see the variety of their experience of nature and according to that I encouraged them to use their abstract thought which builds up during their age.
In art education I wanted to give strength and value to the aesthetic world in order to encourage the individual's desire for cooperation and inclusiveness to present oneself to others in a subjective way. The student's own experience and understanding of art is transformed resulting in their expression of the world.
