Blackboard Beauties – Enrolments Open!

Learn the art of Blackboard Drawing

Reverence and beauty are qualities that are cultivated wonderfully in a Steiner classroom, and the unique beauty surrounding the reverence of blackboard drawings has always been an important part of the Steiner classroom experience for both teachers and students. When we immerse children in a world of vibrant colour, through artistic means such as the beauty of a teacher’s blackboard drawings, then we are able to offer the child a soul experience to colour and form. It is from these blackboard drawings in a Steiner classroom that much of the exciting curriculum is presented, bursting forth, bringing curriculum content to life. In Steiner schools, we use colour and creativity as a curative approach, one that helps the child experience the curriculum from an inner feeling and not just an intellectual understanding, Head, Heart and Hands.

This 7 1/2 hour course will be led by Raphaela Mazzone, a Steiner school alumnus and an accomplished artist and illustrator with 15 years experience studying and working in art, music and drama. Raphaela has a Masters in Fine Art, a Bachelor of Visual Art and Design and is currently studying Psychology. Raphaela has been a Steiner class teacher and is currently a year 7/8 teacher at Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School.


This course was exactly what I needed, as though it was created just for me. I found Raphaela’s presentation inspiring, easy to follow, and thorough. I very much recommend this
course for those who think they cannot draw on a blackboard.
