Our art conference this year included a trip to a private school
in Sacramento called the Waldorf School which is quite large--I
mean widespread--I believe. It is art centered. It was fascinating--
kids learned a right brained approach to all subject areas--ie before
they learned geometry they came to art and created clay polygons and
disected they--refigured them etc. While they studied history they
reviewed the golden mean and its application in visual art. My only
concern when I looked at high school projects was that the arts seemed
to be a handservant to other disciplines--this was not a school for
talented artists--they strive to choose "regular" kids (who can afford
this kind of wonderful place!) Anyway, you may wish to look into
Waldorf. Sid
