Archetypal Man/Animal
  • Van James will guide beginners, intermediate and experienced artists through these color-imaginations of the circle of the seasons and the world of the colors. 
  • Participants can join all four workshops or choose specific ones, and no prior experience is necessary. 
  • The sessions include hands-on painting, conversations, and discussions.
On the centennial of these festive-themed pictures, four online painting sessions will work with their formative color stories. New Life, Three Crosses, Archetypal Plant and Archetypal Man/Animal will be explored in connection with the festival times of year: Christmas/Winter, Easter/Spring, Saint John’s/Summer, and Michaelmas/Autumn. These were the last four watercolor paintings created by Rudolf Steiner in connection with a deepening of his work in Spiritual Science and the significance of the cycle of the year.
