“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 Workbooks 1 and 2 are form-drawing resources for teachers working with specific age groups. They are designed to be used with the Steiner/Waldorf curriculum from classes 1-3 (workbook 1) and classes 4-5 (workbook 2). 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.

The volumes 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.
