The Tucson Waldorf School is opening its doors to give the public a look at its arts-based curriculum.

The admissions preview for grades one through eight will be from noon to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Waldorf River Bend campus, 3605 E. River Road.

Linda Braun, one of the school founders, will give a presentation followed by a narrated viewing of the books created by students.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will wrap up with a demonstration of a science lesson.

The independent school serves grades pre-K through eight.

Its early childhood program, which works with preschoolers through second-graders, is at 3349 E. Presidio Road. All other classes are held at the River Bend campus.

The admissions preview is for parents only. Child care will be provided for children ages 6 and older. RSVP to or call 529-1032.

Before the admissions preview, a puppet play will be presented at the early childhood center from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. for children ages 2 to 6 and their parents.
