Review: Form Drawing and Colouring by Angela Lord

A new review of Form Drawing and Colouring, from the The Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain Newsletter Newsletter, volume 94, March 2017. This one got lost in a pile of magazines in our office for a little while, but it was wonderful to find it! Many thanks to Margaret Jonas for the review.

Form Drawing and Colouring cover

This is a companion volume to the colourful series of form drawing books intended more for children. Here we find patterns inspired by Celtic, Moorish, Native American and Buddhist designs. They are very simply presented with a few dots to start off with and examples of how to develop the forms are then given. One needs only coloured pencils and a ruler to proceed. Colouring books for adults have become very popular and are sold in order to relieve stress so it is good to see on that is developed from the creative form drawing taught in Waldorf schools. A short text encourages one to get started and informs the reader of the benefits to be gained and the thick paper makes it possible to draw in the book itself. The layout and colours are very pleasing and both adults and children should have little difficulty in working through the designs. It is altogether a very clear and pleasing book.
