“As a teacher new to Waldorf education, this book has been an invaluable guide to developing form drawings. I have found that the children’s work became more balanced, co-ordinated and harmonious. The children had a greater attention to detail with spacial awareness after doing these exercises.”—Victor Ray, class teacher at Michael Hall
Creative Form Drawing with children: Workbook 1 is a form drawing resource for teachers working with ages 6–10. It is designed to be used with the Steiner/Waldorf curriculum from classes one through three, although it will also be valuable to home-educating parents using the Steiner/Waldorf ethos as their base.
Creative form drawing helps children develop hand-eye co-ordination, spatial orientation, observations skills, confident movement, drawing skills and the foundations of handwriting. Originally developed by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is widely used in Steiner/Waldorf schools to enable healthy child development and learning.
“We believe that Angela Lord’s workbooks are a very valuable investment and will carry a class teacher through Classes 1-6 without additional resources. That’s £60 well-spent!” —Ann Gulbis and Paul White, Class teachers, Steiner Academy Frome
