A step by step guide to drawing forms for the four temperaments, a resource to use with children 6 to 12 years of age. This has a harmonizing, transformative and strengthening effect on child development. Creative form drawing supports many learning capabilities: improved hand to eye co-ordination, spatial orientation, observation skills, focusing attention, confident movement, drawing skills and the foundation skills for handwriting. Designed specifically by Angela Lord for the four temperaments, these exercises also strengthen personal growth. Originally suggested by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is used widely in Steiner Waldorf Schools to support healthy child development and learning.

“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 Steiner Waldorf School, Forest Row, UK
