Rudolf Steiner stressed the importance of teaching the Renaissance, “this is the all-important period on which much care must be lavished.” WISM instructors have offered over 18 trips to Italy specifically tailored to Waldorf teachers. Join us this summer and experience Rome’s ancient grandeur, the breath-taking art of Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Raphael; and the flowering Renaissance in Florence!

“My experience in Italy deepened my teaching beyond expectations! Not only did I learn in-depth history for my lessons, the trip embodied true elements of heart, passion and personal experiences that enlivened my lessons in all subjects throughout the year.”
~Dianna Guldi, Detroit Waldorf School Class Teacher
