Comment on : Waldorf School of Princeton presents “Princeton in Perspective” at Small World Coffee


Waldorf School of Princeton presents “Princeton in Perspective” at Small World Coffee

During the month of January, artwork from the seventh grade students at Waldorf School of Princeton will be on display at Small World Coffee located at 14 Witherspoon Street in downtown Princeton.  The exhibit is titled, “Princeton in Perspective” and showcases the students’ perspective drawings of various places in Princeton borough.  The exhibit runs from January 5 through the end of the month.
 
“In preparation for their studies of the Renaissance and the Age of Exploration, the seventh grade students at Waldorf School of Princeton studied perspective drawing—a technique that allows them to create the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two dimensional sheet of paper. Our exhibition is the culmination of this study.  This project involved a class trip to Princeton and with our new found knowledge it was as if we were seeing our home town for the first time. We hope the community enjoys our display and that people are able to recognize these sights of Princeton. We are grateful to Small World Coffee for allowing us to share our work,” said Annette Campana, seventh grade class teacher at Waldorf School ofPrinceton.
 
Also on display will be weavings created by the fourth grade students at Waldorf School of Princeton.  After studying the Lene Lenape Indians and geography this semester, the fourth graders created weavings using looms they made out of willow branches and saplings, using the same technique as the Lenapes.  “This project highlights two important elements of Waldorf Education – making learning come alive and interdisciplinary teaching.  Lessons in art, science, math and history can all be found in this work and the students are thrilled to share their efforts with the wider community,” said Pamela Shafer, sculptural arts teacher at Waldorf School of Princeton.
