Introducing Anthroposophy

 

 

What is the Human Being?  Who are we?

 

Rudolf Steiner’s insights create a multi-layered picture that open our minds and hearts to a richer understanding of these questions.

 

A two-fold approach explores the physical and the spiritual natures of the human being, sleeping and waking, breathing in and breathing out, sympathy and antipathy.

Expanding into a three-fold approach we explore the middle way between polarities: body, soul and spirit; thinking, feeling and willing; head, heart and hands.

In the four-fold human being we come to the physical, etheric, astral and ego bodies and see how these are expressed in the mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms, the four elements and the four temperaments.

 

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience an artistic introduction to Anthroposophy including painting, sculpture, music and eurythmy.

Sharon Clifford

I am a mother of a 19yr old daughter, I live near the coast, I love nature in all it’s many forms and wonders.  I work in a variety of professions, my most important being as an artist.  I have developed an ongoing study of colour, I create artworks and teach artistic classes and techniques to adults. What interests me artistically is colour – how it lives and breaths within us and around us.  I question what the unique nature of colour is and to work with this in my practice, alone and with others.  This question has led me on a journey visiting Rudolf Steiner’s work on Goethe’s Theory of Colour, exploring Gerard Wagner, Liane Collot d’Herbois and Gladys Mayer.

Tom Muller
In a number of senses Tom Mùller is a big picture artist. Globalisation, the environment, space and time all fascinate him. He seems to prefer vast data sets, expansive geographies, sweeping timeframes and sequences of history. And yet, at the same time, Mùller is attentive to fine detail, to the specificities of things local, to the poetry of small, momentary and fleeting things that resonate. In this big picture sense Mùller is interested in structures, processes and dynamics.
 In 2012 Mùlller received a Mid-career Fellowship from the Department of Culture and the Arts, and has been awarded numerous Australia Council grants over the last ten years. Tom is currently the Director and Curator of PS Art Space in Fremantle, and the founder of Agency 296 - an art & design studio with a practice that combines a broad range of disciplines including public art, temporary installations, design and architecture.

Lesley Cotter - Sculpture

​Sculpture helps to develop artistic perception, strong will and an understanding of form. Working with the polarities of convex and concave, contraction and expansion, gravity and levity, spherical and angular we will experience the form-creating forces and bring vitality and creativity to the clay. Lesley Cotter is an accomplished sculptor with a particular gift of unlocking the sculptural capacity in each student.
