A step-by-step guide to drawing forms for the four temperaments, a resource to use with children aged 6 to 12 years. This activity has a harmonizing, transformative, and strengthening effect on child development. Creative form drawing supports many learning capacities and abilities: improved hand–eye coordination, spatial orientation, observation skills, focusing attention, confident movement, drawing skills, and foundational skills for handwriting. Designed specifically by Angela Lord for addressing 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.

The features of the book include:

  • Understanding and identifying the temperaments: phlegmatic, choleric, sanguine, and melancholic
  • The purpose and benefits of form drawing for children
  • How and why specific form drawing exercises work
  • Overview and descriptions of the four temperaments
  • Form drawing exercises, lessons, and teaching methods
  • Clearly defined age-appropriate forms for each temperament
  • More than 500 colorful, dynamic forms for drawing
