Art and music are interwoven throughout the curriculum in a Waldorf school in order to develop the imagination, creativity and joy in learning. After reading, the children might draw pictures of the story with bright beeswax crayons, metamorphosing newly learned letters into colorful beings. They might try experimenting with self-made music inspired by the tales, which may then become the class play that semester.

Waldorf education is about teaching all subjects creatively and artistically. The many new and often challenging ideas put before students are presented in an imaginative, rhythmic, and always cheerful way. This will emotionally engage the student and facilitate learning.

Arts
The curriculum also gives time for instruction in specific art skills, some unique only the Steiner system. Beeswax modeling, Waldorf form drawing, watercolors and various needlework arts (both boys and girls) are offered throughout the weekly schedule.

Music specialists teach the students once or twice a week throughout the grades, concentrating on string and wind instruments in addition to singing. The International House of Waldorf-Steiner students will be able to study with a lyre and wind flutes with a trained instructor. In the upper grades the music teachers introduce music theory and musical notation.
