  • “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

This workbook is a form-drawing resource for teachers working with ages 6 to 10. It is designed to be used with the Waldorf curriculum, from classes one through three, although it will also be valuable to home-schooling parents using Waldorf-inspired methods and curriculum as their basis.

Creative form drawing helps children develop hand-eye coordination, 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
