Painting and drawing are key artistic expressions and play important roles in children's physical, emotional, and spiritual development. This comprehensive teachers' guide provides a complete artistic curriculum for Waldorf school classes 1 to 8 (ages 6 to 14).

At each stage, the book shows the skills that teachers can help children to develop. Included are 280 practical exercises for teachers, and more than 800 children's drawings and paintings that serve as inspiring examples of artistic possibilities. The curriculum moves from free to guided color exercises and precise perspective drawing.

Throughout, the author draws on art theory and shows that art is truly a universal language. Painting and Drawing in Waldorf Schools is also suitable for adult self-study.
