Biography and Social Art, March 4, April 1April 22 8:30am-1pm

 

Veteran Waldorf teacher Paulette Arnold will return to Urban Prairie to lead another biography workshop.  She will cover the temperaments and how the events of the 7-14 age range and the 14-21 age range

repeat themselves in subsequent periods of adulthood.  Biography work is invaluable in that it helps us to understand how the events of our own childhoods affect our parenting.  Prior participation in a biography workshop is not a prerequisite.
