After a couple years of vacillating about if I needed your support or not in our homeschool, we finally took the plunge and enrolled in your (Weekly Art) Foundations class. In just a few days my kids have already completed two lessons and it’s spurred on so many other hours of getting lost in free painting and drawing...reminding me that Art isn’t the cherry on top, but the very foundation of our education! It’s been so life giving. To anyone on the fence, don’t wait. Jump in with Waldorfish. It’s worth every penny because the growth you and your children gain is priceless!

Frequently asked questions:


We don't use the Waldorf method. Is this course still appropriate for my family? 

Absolutely! We have many non-Waldorf & Waldorf-ish families using our program. Weekly Art is more about a way of teaching (and learning) art than it is about following a specific educational pedagogy. Robyn was a public school teacher before she was a Waldorf teacher .... we incorporate the best practices from everything we've encountered in our careers.

Can we sign up for just one month?

Weekly Art is not a monthly subscription program. The lessons build on each other from start to finish of the course. *Think of it like signing up for a full school year of Science, or Math, or Dance class.


Where should we start if we’re beginners?

If your family is very new to the Waldorf-inspired arts, you may benefit from our short course Waldorf Art for Beginners. Weekly Art Lessons (Foundations) and Waldorf Art for Beginners are complimentary courses, and can be taken at the same time.

Generally, we recommend Weekly Art - Foundations for ages 7+. Please be sure to try our FREE sample lesson before you make your decision to enroll.

*If you have NOT taken Weekly Art before, please start with the Foundations course.


May I share this course with a friend?

Digital curriculum is NOT legally available for sharing or re-sale (or gifting- unless purchased directly from Waldorfish).

However, we would be thrilled if you share this link with your friends:  http://waldorfish.com/weekly-art-lessons-1/

Thank you for keeping each other accountable. Upholding this legality is important for the continued growth of online Waldorf offerings and the support of those of us creating them for you.


Do I need a high-speed internet connection to view the course videos? 

Yes, all videos are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this when purchasing. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or with limited connections (and we cannot give refunds if you are having issues viewing the videos due to your internet connection). Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine. These lessons are NOT downloadable.


Four lessons per month.... what about months with 5 weeks?

This program includes x4 lessons per month. We encourage you to use any 5th weeks that occur as breathing space in the program. Consider repeating a lesson, or adapting a favorite to something specific you've been studying. You may also choose to simply let art "rest" that week and take a break.


What is your return policy for the Weekly Art Lessons program?

*Weekly Art - Foundations:

Contact us within 7 days of your enrollment date and we will refund your enrollment price, minus a $50 enrollment fee.

Please be sure to try our FREE sample lesson before you make your decision to enroll.

*Please also note: If you cancel your payment plan, or ask for a refund within the grace period of your course, you will lose access to all Weekly Art course content. *


How long do I have access to the course content?

Forever! Remain enrolled for all 34 lessons and you will have unlimited access to this course after it ends.


More questions?

Send us an email at support@waldorfish.com ! We’ll help you sort it out :)

*We are approved vendors with many charter schools - a full list is located here.

The growth mindset message you give throughout the lessons have been so helpful to us. That, and the practice of ‘art show’ are already making a difference in the words my kids use around their art. Thank you!
