“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, coordinated, and harmonious.
The children had a greater attention to detail with special awareness after doing these exercises.”
—Victor Ray, class teacher at Michael Hall Steiner Waldorf School, Kidbrooke Park, England
Creative Form Drawing Workbook 1 is a form-drawing resource for teachers working with a specific
age range. It is designed to be used with the Steiner/Waldorf curriculum from classes 1 to 3.
Creative form drawing helps children develop hand-eye coordination, spatial orientation,
observation skills, confident movement, drawing skills and the foundation skills for handwriting.
Originally developed by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is used widely in Steiner/Waldorf
schools to enable healthy child development and learning.
Both volumes 1 and 2 include sections on the purposes of form drawing, how to use form
drawing to counteract negative screen-effects, and the origins and development of creative
form drawing. Creative Form Drawing is an informative and easy-to-use resource that will
be of great use to anyone wishing to use this valuable developmental tool with children.
