Creative Form Drawing with Children: Workbook 2 is a form-drawing resource for teachers working with ages 10 to 12. It is designed to be used with the Steiner/Waldorf curriculum of classes four and six. It will be valuable, as well, for home-educating parents using the Steiner/Waldorf approach as their core basis.
Creative form drawing helps children develop hand-eye coordination, spatial orientation, observations skills, confident movement, drawing skills, as well as 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.

“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
