Waldorf student art shows at Synapse Wines

By From page B3 | December 20, 2013

Enhance your Main Street holiday shopping with a visit to Synapse Wine, 304 Main St. in Placerville, to view the Cedar Springs Waldorf School class of 2015’s Art Show for the month of December.

The student’s artistic expressions are currently displayed in the tasting room and will be available for purchase by way of a silent auction.

Synapse will reward all bids with a complimentary tasting for two. Winning bids will be announced on Monday, Dec. 23 just in time for the holiday.

All proceeds will benefit the eighth grade students in their class trip fundraising efforts. Former graduating classes have traveled to amazing places such as the Grand Canyon, Hawaii, Washington D.C. and Maine.

“The eighth grade trip for Waldorf students comes at a culmination of their time together (for many they have been classmates for 10 years), before moving on to high school. Most trips provide time for bonding and reminiscing, as well as providing an opportunity for community service. Exposure to cultures and economic circumstances different from their own, making these both valuable and memorable experiences,” Waldorf teacher Paula Thompson said.

CSWS student artists will host a meet and greet at Synapse during Placerville’s Dec. 21 Third Saturday Art Walk from 5-9 p.m.

Art is prominent in all aspects of their education. The Waldorf curriculum immerses students in a broad, multi-disciplinary and personal artistic experience that nurtures imagination and fosters creativity. Students will also display samples of their class work.

Sadly Synapse will be closing its doors on Main Street at the end of this year so don’t miss the opportunity to view beautiful art work while saying goodbye.

Synapse is open Monday through Thursday from 1-7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 1-9 p.m. and Sunday from noon-7 p.m.

There is music on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. featuring local musicians in a family friendly environment.

The Cedar Springs Waldorf School is an independent, accredited Waldorf school with programs spanning pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Since its inception in 1989, CSWS has strived to help children fully develop their own unique capacities and to be inspired with a lifelong love of learning. This is accomplished on a five-acre campus where dedicated and trained teachers educate the whole child — head, heart and hands — through a variety of artistic and academic endeavors.
