$36.00

Creative form drawing helps children develop hand to eye co-ordination, spatial orientation, observation skills, attention, confident movement, drawing skills and the foundation skills for handwriting. Originally developed by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is used widely in Steiner and Waldorf Schools to enable healthy child development and learning. Form drawing can also be used for helping transform learning difficulties.

This books covers the why, what and how of creative form drawing, providing a comprehensive, practical resource for teachers of children aged 6 to 12 years. 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.
